Activate HTML Elements Sequentially - jQuery Sequential Activation

Sequel Activation is a jQuery plugin that lets you automatically activate and deactivate elements in sequence. The first element remains active for a specified period of time, then the next element is activated, and so on. The delay between each activation can be set in milliseconds.

Great for traffic lights, blinking Christmas lights, interactive animations, or anything else that needs some sequencing to make it work.
