Been a long time user of Zonealarm and came across a newcomer called Freedom. It *appears* as though it will give the other firewalls a run for the money. I dumped BlackIce because of stability problems it caused on my system. Might want to mention this to the readers….
Indeed, Peter, thanks.
"Freedom" actually is more than a firewall; it’s an entire suite of free tools including a Firewall, a Form Filler (to speed up and secure online registrations and transactions), a Cookie Manager, an Ad Manager, and a "Keyword Alert" that watches for user-specificed information (say, your phone number, or credit card numbers) in outbound traffic so it can be flagged for your approval before it departs your system.
