Recently, I found myself pondering that too. I now too spend (too)
much time on client side stuff. I've been messing with the Yahoo!
User Interface Library (yui)[1] and found it quite exciting,
especially in combination with the (unofficial) Extensions Library[2].

It's not as hyped as del.icio.us and Prototype, yet it also gets the
job done nicely. Might be worth looking into.
