After using this firewall for months now, I am currently impressed and satisfied with it. Filseclab Personal Firewall is an open-source personal firewall that feels and acts like Sygate Personal Firewall in the way that this program does not nag the user with irritating alert boxes for every single program execution *cough* ZoneAlarm *cough*. Nonetheless, the program itself looks professionally retro without the bells and whistles (bloatware) of other firewalls. If one were to compare this program to other firewalls, I would say that it is a mix of comodo firewall and sygate without all the crap and *cough* bitchiness.
As of right now, I could not find any flaws or complaints about this free program.
- Feature-rich essentials
- Clean interface
- Built-in rules = less annoyances
- Intuitive/User Friendly
- Small Memory Footprint (5mb)
- Small Installation size (~5mb)
- Not enough bitchiness? (could always alter the settings to make it more bitchy but not recommended)
Overall, I would recommend this firewall (hands down too) to anybody who is looking for a free, efficient, and user-friendly firewall.
