Flash FoxTorrent?

Using actionscript, it’s quite possible to develop an Adobe Flash-based UI for FoxTorrent. We’d be the only BitTorrent client with a Flash UI. We could make it look quite slick, and still be useful (i.e. not annoying to use). It would also remove any memory leaks.

Whadd’ya think?  Should we do it?

    Flash is not open source. So if that doesn’t bother you…

    As long as it worked in Gnash, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.

    Well, flash is not accessible for blind people, so I prefer current interface

    Why not AIR (apollo) for a desktop aplication??

    Although Flash isn’t open-source, you might be able to do it on the Flex framework which is open-source – Mozilla Public License.

    And yes, it is quite possible to bring it into a standalone desktop app with apollo.. sounds good..

    why not stay with the mozilla platform and develop a full on xul UI eventually leading to a stand alone application powered by xulrunner?
