Could anyone that has used both share his/her experience? What are the main differences and which one do you prefer? Thank you.

Different socket.io vs APE:
- I believe socket.io supports a lot more browsers/transport compared to APE, but I am not sure. Socket.io information vs information from APE page:
APE Server is an Comet server implementing the POST and GET methods of the HTTP protocol. It does not replace a regular Web Server (such as Apache, Lighttpd or Nginx), however, the APE Server is only used for AJAX Push.
So I guess APE supports less transports then socket.io.
Like Raynos said it is difficult to compare those two products and I believe you should play with them both and then decide which one you like more.
I only have experience with socket.io and I like it a lot.
