jsrender vs angularjs

Can someone please tell me the differences between jsrender and angularjs?  I just spent the weekend and studied jsrender.  I just heard about angularjs and it looks promising.  Can someone please tell me which I should focus on?  Is it either one or the other or do you use both?

Well, to put it simple, jsrender is "only" a template engine for javascript.
It's the successor of jqTemplate (jQuery Templates) that after being almost included in the jQuery stack it was rejected and the owner created two different modules independent from jQuery, jsRender and jsViews which take templating further to model binding most like KnockoutJS...
Also to take in account that last time I checked this is a one man show tool...

As for AngularJS it's one of many MV* (Model-View-Whatever) frameworks to build complete specially oriented, but not only, single page applications.
This is developed and maintained by Google which gives a bit more of confidence.
They are pushing it with conferences and stuff... the project is pretty much alive.

If you want you can have a look at others (links bellow), more or less opinionated MV* frameworks out there. Try them out and take your own conclusions. There are a lot of comparison flaming articles but there's weak and strong on all of them, you just need to pick the right one for the job.
