Has Firefox considered adding support for the up-coming SAFE network (from MaidSafe of Scotland - this will change the world)?

Posted

Hi there, This is a possibly ground-breaking suggestion, not a support request. I am an avid user of FireFox and would like to continue using FireFox when the SAFE network* (a new, autonomous, distributed, totally encrypted internet) ... is completed. I think Mozilla/FireFox should speak with MaidSafe (their HQ is in Scotland) about integrating (somehow) the ability to browse the upcoming SAFE network into Firefox. As a user I would rather keep using FireFox at times, rather than having to switch to their SAFE Browser (a freestanding 'SAFE Network' browser which, by the way, doesn't link to the 'existing internet' (it's totally separate). As a user it would be great to be able to just switch tabs in FF and then be able to enter a SAFE URL (something like safe://domain(etc.) rather than the usual https://www.domain.etc. The two 'internets' would still be separate but they'd feel more close if I could just switch between them in FF tabs. See what you think. I think you guys should speak to them to try to integrate FF with the SAFE network *as well as* their own browser existing for those who want to use it as a standalone. I hope this is of interest.

  • See https://maidsafe.net/ for more details. They are WELL ahead of their time, having released their white paper BEFORE the advent of Bitcoin, for example, and were only the 2nd ICO ever to happen. So they're trailblazers for sure and this new technology will probably change the world. They are busy building the new internet and are currently at Alpha 2 stage (there will be 2 more Alphas before it gets to a Beta release, perhaps in a year or two, best guess).

I should mention that I'm just a fan of FireFox and the upcoming SAFE Network - I am not affiliated with either (I'm just a user). My thinking was that if they and you get together somehow, then it would be a great 'forward-thinking' move on each of your parts and also be one step ahead of the likes of Chrome/Google and Microsoft/Edge/IE etc. It would be yet ANOTHER reason to favour FF over those other crappy browsers!

I hope it's of interest and you can follow my logic.

Best regards and thanks for providing the best browser on the planet,

MrPilot.

P.S. both FireFox and the SAFE network want an open and free internet or, as FF put it in a recent email to me, they're both committed to "building products that put you in control of your online life and advancing open technology and public policy that promote a healthier internet. We put [users] at the center of everything we do." Again, hence thinking you guys should collaborate and support each other.

Sincere apologies - I'm a newbie when it comes to contacting Firefox support (because it's so reliable!). I'll head on over to one of your links and re-post. Many thanks for the heads-up and have a great day. Best regards, MrPilot.
