What I'm expressing here, is as a new user to SAFE...I want to go to a clearnet site and download 1 installer that opens a browser with a welcome page that can guide me through a SAFE experience. If I choose to experience something that requires an account then that experience should be a walk through, not a starship enterprise launcher box.
I just think that a 'launcher' is a barrier to entry...maybe thats changed with the new scheme, not sure.

So I click this dialogue repeatedly, how do I know what network I'm on?
I have no idea what the rocket adjacent the address bar does.
I'd like to see the Safenetwork logo used (different colours with mouseover status) to indicate a toggle state. The focus should be on SAFE, not launcher rockets.
As a part of the Community Engagement Program, we are looking forward to receiving proposals to build a browser for the SAFE Network.
The high-level requirement is relatively simple, the browser should be able to render standard web content and also enable web applications to invoke the APIs exposed by the Launcher. A mechanism to provide SAFE-only URLs as well as html...etc… is expected, whether this is default SAFE or via a “switch”. In SAFE mode we would imagine that “clearnet” requests would be blocked.
You met the design brief...congratulations and thanks for your hard work
This tab re-loading behaviour has highlighted a possible flaw in toggle thinking...I think the toggle is inviting dissonance for your regular WWW surfer. There's a saying in web design 'Don't make me think' and this toggle bothers my brain big time.
If there was a stretch goal and you were tasked with a SAFE only design, would it be a major re-write?
I'd like to see Maidsafe offer 2 versions of Beaker.
I'm thinking a SAFE only version should be the default download, it does what it says on the tin...a SAFE experience and nothing more.
An option would be this current one with the switch for the more adventurous type, that wants to do the toggle straddle.
