Wow, the list gets better and better, thanks.
May I suggest to add
1. Under Web browsing utilities, LinkScanner Lite from XPL labs. Unlike Site Advisor which McAfee now controls, the XPL product has no nag screen to buy and IMO is better, just slightly slower to fill the green, red, yellow checks.

2. Under free firewalls, old and good, Kerio firewall v2.1.5

You're making your suggestions in the wrong place, tos226. :thumbsup:

Add LinkScanner Lite to the Freeware topic, otherwise I'll forget about it, when it comes time to update the list again.

Kerio is already on the list.
It just has a different name, now.

Sunbelt Personal Firewall used to be called the Kerio Personal Firewall (KPF). Kerio was going to discontinue it, but Sunbelt acquired it from Kerio to save the product from "going under".
We needed a new name, and changed 'KPF' into the new 'SPF' ! (so much for software geeks being creative...)

Hey TG,

I think tos is referring to the old version (I use that one too after Sunbelts new GUI version gave me some naggings). Its very basic and easy to use if you prefer to use non-GUI thingies.

O and thanks for the list updating :thumbsup:

If that's what you're referring to tos226, add it to the freeware topic.
Be sure to mention that it's the older version, you're referring to.

OK.
Kerio - yes, I was referring to Kerio 2.1.5, before Sunbelt bloated it up. I'll copy the note there.
