Qgis Web Client is more a friend than a competitor, as we all try to
enhance QGIS Server to improve each client :)

I think this is the big difference between Lizmap and Qgis Web Client (but
I can be wrong, as I have barely tested it) :
* Lizmap is buit with a php framework, so it do whatever is possible server
side : rights management, use database , use web caching, etc. Lizmap does
2 jobs : it create the web map interface AND it acts as a proxy between
QGIS Server and the web map.
* Qgis Web Client is built with geoext, which is only javascript. So you
cannot create web services with it. You must rely on other tools to
provides server side scripting.

Marco, please correct me if I am wrong.
