Take a look at this timeline widget.

For example; here's Jewish history rendered out.

This could provide a very easy to understand and navigate project timeline.

That library is interesting, but I don't really see much benefit for the Trac timeline. It seems very good for visualizing events that occur over extended periods of time and may overlap each other. The Trac events occur at distinct points in time, so there's no overlap. I think the current linear presentation which allows you to use the standard browser scrolling is much easier to read and navigate.

Buzzword Rant: AJAX = Asynchronous Javascript And XML. If there's no Asychronous or XML it's not AJAX.

You can use XML as a datasource, or JSON, and load everything asynchronously.

It's also very possible to get the 'timeline' bands to scale down to the minute level - which is what trac is down to now.

True the current method is easy to use with browser tools such as inline find. However, I have difficulty with the default color set and text size actually locating what I want often by just eyeballing it.

This would be very well suited to a plugin.
