Im currently compiling my BTS-1 wallet to 0.9.3 so that I can create a new backup that can be imported into the the 2.0 web wallet - jesus this is complicated.

Is the cli_wallet just for exchanges etc? Most general users would want to run the web wallet (sometimes a local one), so is it true they would never need the cli_wallet? Are the any differences in security between the running your own web wallet and the cli_wallet?

Click the "Lock wallet" button at the top. Then you're a in view-only mode and can just view things. You can close your browser window then.

How do I import my keys from my AGS donations into Openledger? Doesn't seem to work for me. What's the best way to do this?

I guess you need to do it in two steps: first you need to import your AGS keys into the 0.9.3c GUI and then export the keys from there and import them to the 2.0 GUI as it's described here:
http://docs.bitshares.eu/migration/index.html
But I've never done it this way, so this is only me guessing.

These are the only BitShares video tutorials I am aware of:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChtICzF0ZEhhgoMA8YWhULw/videos
But all of them were made before BTS 2.0 was available so some of the information is probably be outdated.
There might be other videos but I haven't heard of any video tutorial targeted for the 2.0 version specifically.
I guess it's so new nobody had time to do it.

Would you not want to use the online wallet?

I someone has already imported his bts1 private keys to the hosted bts2.0 openledger web-wallet and he decides to import them to a desktop full node or desktop light-client, how can he delete his private-keys  on the hosted wallet so he can be sure he is not in danger of a future server compromise? Deleting the wallet is enough?

The wallet is NOT stored on the server, you cannot be compromised when the server gets hacked. You should delete the keys in the browser local storage though, when you do not intend to use this web wallet again.

EDIT: Only when the server publishes malicious code, and you continue to use this web wallet, you're in danger.

that's my point ... if the hosted server get compromised then we are in danger... As I understand  it only if we login after the compromise.... (if we don't login anymore after the compromise we are safe)
Theoretical could the owners of openledger.info collect all private keys right now and use them in future when our market cap is big enough?(assuming it is "compromise" from the beginning? :-X) Using openledger and their hosted wallet means we 100% trust the openledger owners? Right?

I'd certainly feel more comfortable if I could just execute a file in the 2.15.286.tar.gz downloads and have a wallet. I wish to protect my BTS and explore.  Why is this so difficult?

It's more difficult than posting a message on this forum, in which I need to reference La Place every time I want to edit my post.
