The weapon screen is kind of clumsy, clearly more intended for consoles than PCs.

I'll just add that the percentage you see in the middle of the screen represent the recharge delay bonus, which is affected by the weight of the weapons you carry. There are skills you can get that increases the amount you can carry before you get penalized. This is only for your character, though. Your squad in single player don't seem to be affected by weight.

A positive percentage makes your abilities recharge faster, negative percentage slows it down, and they're capped at 200%. Generally you'll want to balance weapon flexibility vs weight. If you're a caster class, like an adept or engineer, for example, you'll probably want to go with a light load.
