I’m talking straight-up porting of static websites to SAFE network, so it can get mass adoption. There are tons of client-side web apps that use server scripts for coordination and logic BUT this would encourage apps to be totally client side and made from static files. All storage would be done with HTTP verbs GET POST PUT DELETE etc.
We would need a browser that reimplements certain APIs such as XMLHTTPRequest and the new fetch() API as well as all web fetching. Such a thing can be done with basic WebView and NSURLRequest on mobile, I think! So a mobile browser can be built.
The thing is, however, that the client MUST do a bunch of operations to encrypt and decrypt the data according to the SAFE protocol. Also when we are dealing with SAFE domains it must use Kademlia based routing instead of DNS.
Did I miss anything? Is it possible to make a browser extension to existing browsers or a whole new browser must be launched such as Beaker browser?
I was under the impression that if we set up gateways on the back end, we could have a fallback for regular browsers in terms of interfacing with SAFE network via web requests. But can a browser be written that uses THE NORMAL WebView in iOS and have all requests to a certain domain or protocol intercepted and sent to SAFE NETWORK?
That would be MAJOR!
