‘Toggle SAFE Browsing’ menu item, I though David’s brief called for a browser that does not connect to clearnet at all? I find this really confusing and what we were trying to avoid, not sure why I would use this browser over my regular browser.
The toggle gives no indication as to what state it is currently in and when the toggle is engaged, all the SAFE tabs do a re-load.
When ‘open link in new tab’, default behaviour should be to remain on current tab.
File/ Open Location - What filetypes is this designed to open? Are the locations on current machine?
The rocket icon that turns into a star/exclamation (next to refresh) what behaviour is this supposed to invoke? (no context when hovering)
The Safenetwork icon… is that going to be pointing to something useful. I’d think it should point to a SAFE hosted version of the Maidsafe site i.e the current central repository of enlightenment and should have a hover value of ‘Help Me’ or similar.
Probably not the fault of beaker, but when the browser is shut down and re-opened, launcher wants to re-authorize, without releasing the previous session(s)
‘Authorised with SAFE Launcher’ personally I would like to see ‘Authorised with the SAFE Network’. The ‘Launcher’ is a mental barrier that needs to be banished.
When I decide to try SAFE, I expect to click one link that gives me a browser with some easily accessible links to surf. I do not expect to be prompted with an ‘allow access’ dialogue and a launcher.
Launcher should be packaged with the beaker browser (and named ‘SAFE Network’?)
Why do I need to manually allow the browser in Launcher, can not the system recognise one of it’s official components (MD5 or something)?
Launcher should only run in the background until I initiate an action on the network that requires account creation. ‘This action requires an account, would you like to create one now?’
Account creation process should be a 'step me through it flow, the same as installing local software…I’m familiar with that ( it is not currently obvious that I need to type in a secret and password, should read ‘enter secret and password’ doh!)
Once the ‘launcher’ is happy and I click ‘Finish’, it should minimize to the tray…where geeks can bring it to the front if required.
Current launcher needs the red close button eliminated, I should not be able to close the launcher (disconnecting from the network) in this manner. The only way to shut down launcher, should be a right click from the tray.
