Timeline is an impressive DHTML-based AJAX widget written by David François Huynh for visualizing time-based events. It is like Google Maps for time-based information. Biologists might use this script to display seminars, publications. I also suggested the author that it could be used to display genomic traks (such as ensembl or the UCSC genome Browser) by just replacing "time-start" by "chromosome-start".

BTW, this reminds me something that was said at JavaDay 2006: someone wondered why so many interfaces use AJAX wereas a simple(r) applet could be written.
