Not quite sure what the point of doing user-authentication on the client-side is.

Surely, it would make more sense to write a backend page that performed this task?
A page that the user couldn't hack to authenticate themselves regardless of login credentials? Otherwise, what's to stop me from being authenticated as somebody else? Since it's client-side, I could view the page source and work out the required steps to be authenticated by the system as any user of my choice.

Should a backend solution be prohibited, you'll be forced to either
(a) write a native-code (dll) plugin for each browser of choice
(b) limit users to weak/non-existent security AND require the use of IE only.

Wait, I think you need to rethink about what you want to achive.
jQuery [^]is nothing but a simple library which helps to traverse the html on client side.

Active Directory on the other side is Server Technology for user authentication.
