which one is recomended to use for safe surfing?
From what I remember Forcefield consumed a lot of resources and slowed down surfing to a crawl,neither of which problem I've ever experienced with Sandboxie.As for relative security,Sandboxie is very secure,so I doubt Forcefield would be better on that score.
i ask cause i just experience as you mentioned above,it was really slow
the protection was ok but forcefield users have to pay the price
i also noticed that when uninstall it left alot of debris
i have to clean it with ccleaner.other coments are welcome
SandboxIE has shown itself to be a very good and safe internet browsing application.
It also does not slow down my machine at all and is easy to use and allows for downloading without rebooting.
Sandboxie hands down. One of the best apps out there.
Ill second and third that. Sandboxie is a gem.
i wanted to give forcefield a try but my browsing was begging to move
it went very slow,so i deleted.i got a tuesday free patch licence from zonelabs but it is useless
Out of curiosity I've tried out other sandboxes from time to time,Forcefield,Bufferzone and safespace;but I always come back to Sandboxie.It's not as pretty as the competition but it's light as a feather and just works flawlessly,magnificent product.
Personally, i suggest Sandboxie. Its really light and, if used and configured properly, could potentially be the only defense you need.
The new ZAFF beta build (available for free) has resolved most memory issues I faced. But still on one of my Vista Machines I seem to have issues with IE7 and more than 5 tabs ....
Other than that ZAFF is pretty good. Its made essentially for the novice and average joe user. And it works well for them and also is also tweaked already to handle popular addons, apps (like keyscrambler) and other scenarios without much brain scratching. But ZAFF is limited to only web-browsers ( IE and FF only ).
SB on the other hand is meant for power users and hence the GUI is blant. Plus it has a high learning curve. But you can create effective sandboxes for any app with it.
So choice lies in mainly two factors: user skill and usage. Out of the box, I would recommend SB, unless the end user happens to be be Granny. I also would suggest a look at DefenseWall.
i really prefer the combination of sandboxie or defensewall and a hips program
I use Sandboxie only and i m quite satisfied
cool,where sandboxie protects your applications in real time,a hips program protect your system deep inside the root or core(soul)of your harddrive againts all kind of malware
