Default tool to help with Top 5000 list

I've been thinking recently about how hard it is to pull up extra info on anything from the Top 5000 list (http://primes.utm.edu/primes/lists/all.txt) and how it would/should be pretty easy to make a Firefox extension or Greasemonkey script or web site or something that offers things like this:

Click on the prime's description to bring up info for that prime.

Something with the 'who' tag, I'm thinking you can click it and bring up a small box that shows the name, project, and program info, each linked (like the info at the very bottom, but linked, and of course easier to get to), as well as something to see other primes by that tag or person.

I'd like it to work as an AJAX thing, where you really stay on the Top 5000 list whatever you click on, just bringing it up in some sort of small box.

As a perfect example of how this would be useful, I was just trying to see the largest prime that was verified by Caldwell instead of External, so I had to open a tab on http://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php, copy the first prime's description, paste it in, click search, then see it, press the back button, and repeat. With something like this, I could click the first one, see it, repeat.
I'm not sure how the windows you open up should close...perhaps when you move the mouse away, like Popups (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...igation_popups), if you're familiar with that (I think that Popups inspired a lot of this idea ). Or maybe permanent until you close it. Maybe only one window at a time.

I was wondering if anything like that exists or if anyone would be willing to make it.

I hijack this thread for something I proposed some time ago in a motivating context in the Happy Me(&al) thread but which could not be developed there (in addition to the problem that nobody nuderstood me, as usual...)
Now it can again be of current interest in this context, as I'll explain below.

(Fuzzy) statement of the problem:
given a list of competitors in a race, with current (ground) speed and mileage, give an estimation of the "rank speed", i.e. how many places a competitor will "win" or lose on the ranking list of positions per unit of time, as function of data of (some of) the neighbouring competitors.


Context: say I'm ranking #N in the top producers awards, but I have some more P90 CPU hrs/day than most neighbours, then I can expect my P90 CPU yrs to grow faster than theirs, thus I'll climb faster in the top producers awards list than they would.

Of course "everything can be calculated exactly" ; the "problem" (task) is rather to find a simple, "local" heuristical formula which gives a reasonable estimation. (Say, the "best" one can predict using a given number C of neighbours).

I agree that the task is not formulated very precisely, (that's why I might get flamed if I posted it in the Puzzle section...)

I could imagine that a simple formula might also be implemented in your Navigation popup (either in textual form, like "+9/month" or so, or even in graphical form, as a green up arrow or a red down arrow with length proportional to the estimated "rank speed").

This page has the functionality of what I wanted, and it's already on primes.utm.edu. I guess I really don't need this tool after all.

I've seen that before, and it's cool 'n all, but this is for a very different thing. That's for info on GIMPS's search, this is for info on the discovered primes.
