I need my Javascript browser application to convert/export KML documents into ESRI shapefiles. Is there any JS library that can do it? I tried googling, but no answers so far (at least, not in Javascript).

js2shapefile looks like it should be able to do this, although it may require you to write or use a separate KML parser. See this code for example usage with Google Maps.
