    Matousec's test are primarily to test outbound leaks. Those firewalls that allow for customized/restrictive outbound control such as Comodo and Outpost always score high on its tests. Personally, I think their tests are BS. A firewall's primary purpose is to keep out unwanted inbound traffic.

    Here is a link to an article written in layman terms that sampled known firewall reviews at the time the article was written: http://www.consumersearch.com/firewalls/pc-firewalls
