With one of the jQuery timeline plugins listed here, you can add cool and interactive timelines to your web pages. The timeline format is not new, but really, it got popular when Facebook decided to add it to their wall design.

It is a great way for agencies to present their history; their development in number of employees, key client wins etc.
