When I first got interested in SAFE (2015ish?) apps ran as web apps on the network in a browser that did not have access to Clearnet. It was positioned as an Overlay network that provided a secure sandbox that included limiting the applications that ran on it to only being able to access the SAFE network. This simple technical constraint on apps was important to me, as it explicitly limited application developers to operating within the security and privacy restrictions intrinsic to the SAFE network.
It was shortly after this original alpha that Maidsafe re-architected the network into an API to support more platforms, etc, reorged to focus on the technology, and limited outreach to the community in terms of documentation, samples, etc.
Based on the status updates which I have still follow for all these years, it seems the SAFE network is now an API that programmer’s use when building application, and by virtue of supporting mobile and desktop applications (not just web apps that load off the network), it no longer restricts the application code to only access the SAFE network, and applications will no longer be explicitly constrained to the sandbox of the network?
Is this correct?
