    Right there on

    http://www.mozilla.org/

    is the option to download Mozilla 1.7rc2 via BitTorrent. Now up until now
    BitTorrent has been suggested as being used for 700MB iso images.

    It seems that we now have the case of the 30MB download would benefit from
    BitTorrent. Suddenly even dial up seems to have been invited to the party.
    After all even at 33.6K 250KB (a Bit slice) does not take that long.

    The network is fast becoming an equal two way traffic. It is reaching
    maturity. Now, why do we need to have a monolopy thrown into the mix?
