Parsley bills itself as "the ultimate JavaScript form validation library".  It is open source, utilizes jQuery, and is very easy to use.  Adding validation rules can either be done via the form fields in a way that harkens back to CFFORM validation (in a good way) or it can be unobtrusively added to the page.  It can also take advantage of HTML5 form field attributes.

Although we all do server side validation (or should), Parsley is a way to easily and consistently add client side validation to your web applications.
