I would say it was better (in features) than Comodo, before it was sold...
The protection is good. I just don't like that you have the professional version features *into* the free one, disabled.
Comodo has a better development team, a better support too (with forum).

according to this site http://www.firewallleaktester.com/tests_overview.php the kerio firewall seems to be more effective than comodo..but neither i like to see disabled features in my program..and i have already customise the settings/rules at comodo so i will keep it..

I think a forum search for both comodo and kerio would be worth while as both have had issues at times. Use the advance search and sort by Most recent so you don't get very out of date info.

Please keep in mind that this is an old test result (comodo ver 1). Comodo is now version 2.3.6.81 and much better.

I wish they update that test  :'(

Timcam, do you know any other, updated, test of firewalls?
Oh, please, not a biased one  ;)

Hi Tech,this is the latest test that I know of.I believe they are not biased to any firewall vendor.

Thanks TimCan... bookmarked...
I'm happy to be using Comodo  ;D

Oh, I just want to add that we can't expect better words about AVG Firewall... it's ridiculous... but AVG users seem to believe on Grisoft in this point.
The antispyware is excelent, the antivirus is good, the firewall is ridiculous  :P

yeah?y?i find it rly good..the only bad in my opinion is that it has no an hacker attack calculator..i mean,it would be nice if it can shows how many attacks blocked like ZA..

Any counter is just a warm fuzzy feeling for the user and really of little use (wow, my firewall stopped 1000 attacks, it the ones that it doesn't that will hurt), you have nothing to fear with the stuff it stops, just the stuff it doesn't stop and there is no counter for that ;D

Whilst my firewall does have an attack detection plug-in, which is a lot more than a simple counter I rarely ever check my firewall logs unless I'm suspicious or often fault finding to see if something has been blocked. So the outbound and inbound blocked logs can be useful in fault finding, etc.
