This plugin lets dates be displayed in relative form. Examples: "2 days ago", "1 month and 3 days ago", "30 minutes ago". Hovering over the date will cause a tooltip to pop up with the absolute date.

This only works in browsers with javascript enabled; other browsers will show the absolute date instead. Also, this plugin can be used with other plugins like prettydate that change how the absolute date is displayed.
