Just to expand on this a little:

Squert wasn't designed to be an analyst console (in the typical sense
of the term).  If you are a dedicated analyst or part of a team of
analysts doing weighted FIFO analysis then Squert is definitely not
for you. Squert was created and is being developed to provide an easy
way to look at a whole bunch of data with different views that will
hopefully (ultimately) give you a hint of developing and ongoing
problems; at a glance.

More simply though, it is for people that have been tasked with
security, that aren't really good at security, and only get to spend
20% of their day on security :)
