Ribbonbar UI Web Component

Ribbonbar UI is by far the best recreation of the “real” desktop ribbonbar for the web. It is skinnable, fully AJAX driven component that is ready to use on any website. What you can you do with a MS Office like ribbon bar in web environment? Whether use it for navigation, associate it with your WYSIWYG editor, use in an email application, display links to your favorite social websites or simply build your entire webpage around it – this depends only on you.
