    The trial can be used for 15 days, then it switches to a limited mode. "Many features and options are disabled", but it is not mentioned what features and it is also not mentioned on the website.

    Just tried and then uninstalled it

    It's very slow to act like when you pressed the buttons they take a few seconds to respond and sometimes even take longer to respond when you are opening a browser at the same time.

    Just installed on my 2 tablets on trial and they are running well :)

    It has very impressive features. The below features are no longer there

    - Ad blocking
    - Referrer blocking
    - ActiveX blocking
    - Cookies blocking

    Actually, not required since other software and the browser/extensions already have them

    Good firewall. Too much paranoia here. And I just found out it is still actively developed. This was from their support team so take it with a grain of salt.

    I contacted their support, they replied within a day, not bad for a free product. Still they replied, that it does not support IP ranges, that is not good, not good at all for a firewall. :doubt:

    Interesting you say this as I see no problem with it. Guess it depends on how paranoid you are.

    Does it still have the problem with the local proxy hole? Or has that been fixed?

    Matousek (outdated) tested AV and HIPS capabilities, not firewalls. That is the reason he renamed it from a firewall challenge to proactive security, but no one took him seriously anyway.
