Interactive Primate Tree

In my web travels, I came across the Javascript InfoVis Toolkit (JIT) and wanted to try it out. Luckily I had some time to kill during a DNA extraction. Below is an interactive visualization of a primate evolutionary tree made using the SpaceTree package. Click nodes to expand/collapse them. Click and drag in the background to pan. The shade of teal in the unselected nodes reflects the number of children they contain.

The tree is copied from Fleagle 1999, so it's not the correct or modern phylogeny. I just had the book handy.
