Are you tired of applications doing things you didn’t ask them to do and showing information in the way you don’t like? There is a way to give you the full control over applications.
Developers of the programs declare all the time that they are providing you with the best possible programs and that their programs are doing exactly what you need. But when you try to do anything, you immediately find out that there is a very strict set of possibilities and you can do only whatever was approved by developers. While working inside applications, you can’t even move the screen objects around and give them the sizes and positions you prefer. With an easy finger touch you can do everything on your cellular phone, tablet computer, or any other new device. Can we work in the same easy way inside all the programs on our PCs?

Any application must have a nice design and usually it is designed in such a way but for some hypothetical average user. If you make all screen elements movable and resizable, then each user can easily change the view of a program in any way he wants and at any moment. This movability of elements doesn’t change their functionality and doesn’t require an addition of some new visible details. You simply know that any element, regardless of its geometry, can be moved by any inner point, resized by border, and it will continue to work correctly.
With the help of a mouse, users can directly manipulate all the screen elements. This changes not only the view of programs but the way users deal with PCs. As a result, users get the full control over the applications they work with.
