As title says, I want to see the application in action, when is there a public beta to see that? And do we have an idea of the launch day?
When is launch and when is beta? (I want to access the application and see how it functions/access some websites through it)
There will be three stages of testnets before beta release - Testnet1 is gearing up now. Expect a few months of testing and a beta launch by the end of the year.

OK, it looks like testnet1 is up now isnt it? How do I access the client?
What I’m looking for is to be able to access the content in the maidsafe network. I imagine the first development is that there should be some major sites in there, I want to be able to browse and navigate those sites. Once I can do this, it will feel real to me, until I can do that, it’s hard to really make it concrete in my head.
This is a relatively simple testnet… no real users or data, no sites to access, no way for you to connect to it. That will be possible in a subsequent test network. Please follow the developer updates (search for “Dev Update”) if you want to keep up to date with what each testnet allows.
