I have heard FoxFi no longer works on 4.4.2. Is there a workaround for this?

Yes use the native app built in the phones then use a user agent spoofer in your browser, change it to Internet Explorer 8 skip that step of you use Linux

Can you please provide more info on how this works?
What about NON browser applications? I have a Windows 8 laptop that gets frequent updates that can be quite large.. Should I stop using Chrome and start using IE8?

No use Chrome you can use the user agent switcher in Chrome it's an extension, change it to ie8 that way you can use the browser everything else tends to just work from torrents to updates, you will have to retest the anti virus updates see if they still allow it (I haven't used windows since August)

The hotshot app. Should be in setting >wireless networks >tethering and hotspot

No action needs to be taken besides a user agent switch on the Web browser?

No idea if this'll work on the kk update since it's not out yet but on stock rooted 98.30.1.XT907 there's this hack
