    Hi

    Seems like Forcefield has similar features to Sandboxie and Geswall except it scans for spyware on downloads and checks for valid sites. Do you guys feel it has the same protection?

    IMO, ZA FF is more commerical version of Sandboxie for Browsers only. Hence it provides spyware scanning and better integration with the browser that other products you have mentioned.

    Protection-wise, each has its utility and provide in a basic sense the same amount of protection.

    If you want to use primarily browsers in a sand-box, choose ZA FF.
    If you want to run browsers and other apps in sand-box, choose Sandboxie/Geswall

    Hope I could help ...

    thanks. That is exactly what I am looking for, only browser protection. I use CFP v3 and Avast home to hold off the rest!
