Summary

This extension customizes the RAIN (Banner Web @ GSW) user interface by completely reworking the model of interaction between a user and RAIN. The existing interface assumes a user to follow selected links that results in complete redrawing of a page. One simple action could be associated with more than 5 clicks... which is inconvenient.

The new UI (available by clicking "umbrella" icon at the right-end of the address bar) implements a concept of Web 2.0 where web page content is rendered on fly from multiple independent pieces that represent different parts of the RAIN ecosystem.
