Just you wait till you get to the MegaRAID command line!  It makes
tw_cli seem like echo in comparison.

I found the 3ware web interface too clunky for my purposes, so I forced
myself to learn tw_cli.  Once I used it regularly I found it to be
mostly usable.  I've yet to do this with megacli or storcli, and those
are so much more complicated than tw_cli, so I haven't learned them very
well yet.

But (getting back a little to the original topic) getting to the 3ware
web interface should not require root privileges on the client, since
it's just the browser connecting to the 3ware http(s) listener.  The OP
seemed to be ranting about a prompt for an administrative password from
the desktop environment.
