For interactive graphs I'd advise you js frameworks like the JavaScript Infovis Toolkit.

If you have any questions about QuickGraph feel free to contact me, I do experimented a lot with it so maybe I could help. It's sad that this project is on hold as it's a great (an AFAIK pretty much only) C# graph framework out there.

I haven't looked into Graphviz. I only tried .dot file generation. That works well but alone won't give you anything in terms of interaction of course. I used this only to then generate .svg images through the service, just as it was included in QuickGraph previously but then removed. Basically this service takes a .dot string (the representation of a graph) and returns the SVG XML.

But if you want interactive layouts for web pages, I don't advice that for you. JIT is much better in terms of interactivity, as well as Dracula or jsPlumb. Canviz as an in-browser .dot viewer is promising but not yet ready.
