Sure, there are various techniques. See the wikipedia article for a
summary of a few of them:


Seaside uses the "Hidden Iframe" hack, which is very simple and works
even on old browsers.

Also see the recent mail of Philippe on WebSockets. This technique is
the way to go in the future, albeit it is currently not well supported
by mainstream browsers.
