explain wget command

debian 9
wget

https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html
I have not read it all.

Is apt-get for installing debian packages?
Is wget for downloading from everywhere?

Code: Select all
sudo wget -O - http://apt.maidsafe.net/repos/maidsafe.apt.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

The command downloads maidsafe's pgp public key and adds it to the sources list?

Code: Select all
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/maidsafe.list http://apt.maidsafe.net/repos/maidsafe.list

The command edits the sources list to include maidsafe?

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

Updates the system?

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install safe-browser

Installs the maidsafe program?

Thank you.
