There's more to a firewall than just the latest figures at Matousec, e.g. usability.

The latest version of Comodo is the easiest yet for the new beginner, hardly a pop up. You can also check the review to that end in the link below.

Comodo has improved a lot when it comes to usability, but IMHO it still feels more for intermediate/advanced users. E.g. compared to something like Sunbelt which has less pop ups I believe. Anyway, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Comodo isn't a good firewall cause it is, but just one should look a bit further than solely at Matousec's results.

I disagree about Windows XP firewall being the best since it does not provide any outbound protection. I feel that it is very important to have that just in case some bad thing gets into the system.
