What historical chronologies on the internet are available for free.

An example in book form (and web form I believe) is “The People’s Chronology”

Well you do have the ability of sorting Wikipedia by year.

My favorite timeline on the whole entire Internet is the Back to the Future timeline on Wikipedia. Though, that's not technically historical.

You may find some stuff at the 'Teaching and Learning' pages of the Center for History and New Media website at George Mason University--for example, there's a timeline of the French Revolution (part of a much bigger, explorable resource) accessible through the 'World History Matters' bit. That website would probably be a good place to search for more.

Otherwise, doing a site search for 'timeline' or 'chronology' on museum websites might turn something up--for example, this timeline (not terribly detailed) of the development of Concorde from the National Museum of Scotland. Sorry not to be more help...
