use .part file naming for xfer downloads #1237

Feature description

Use a temporary filename suffixed with .part for incomplete downloads and then rename the file when the download is complete. Like what Firefox does. Then I can easily be certain whether my downloads have completed, which does not seem to be possible now in many cases.

An alternative solution is to have a separate directory for completed downloads.
