Right, you mean that large country that has been trampling over the freedom of its people for decades and carrying out a state sponsored, gender selective campaign of coerced abortion? Great example, really great.

Linux.com has a brief overview of FoxTorrent, a BitTorrent extension for Mozilla Firefox. The review outlines the extension's basic operation and takes a look at some of its more unique features, such as the ability to stream media files as they download.
BitTorrent clients are all over the place these days. One of the newcomers, FoxTorrent, is a fully functional cross-platform Firefox BitTorrent client created by Red Swoosh, a company that is now part of Akamai. What FoxTorrent lacks in features it makes up for in simplicity.
As of this writing the current release is 1.03 (version 1.0 was released on April 26). This version fixes an issue that caused the extension not to work on Linux and OS X; I ran into this issue under Gentoo (Firefox 1.5), but everything worked fine with Ubuntu 7.04 (Firefox 2.0).
FoxTorrent works like any BitTorrent client. When it finds a torrent it starts downloading the files and displays a screen to show the user what is going on.
According to the review this client stops seeding the torrent after the download has been completed. Why waste your time developing something like this if it ultimately defeats the purpose of BitTorrent?"
