Hello.

What do you guys use if you use one? I heard good thing about Little  
Snitch. Are there any more like it, but freeware and simple/light to  
customize (e.g., Kerio Personal Firewall, Outpost Firewall 2009, etc. in  
Windows)?  

Thank you in advance. :)

Wow, old products and article from 6/18/2008.  
http://www.hanynet.com/noobproof/ shows 2.5 stars out of 5.  
https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/26502/noobproof says up to 10.7.  
What about the newer versions? :(

At least http://www.hanynet.com/waterroof/ is updated (no Mac OS X 10.9  
though) and has almost five stars.

Up to date info here:

Working up to Yosemite ... I think you should look at the original
webpage where they offer it, the first web was only so you could begin
searching.
I am using LittleSnitch and I am very glad with it .. but used before
(Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion times) theese firewalls front-end.
Cheers.

So far, Little Snitch is my favorite. Others are complex to use. :/

Why not musing ipfw, it should be onboard already. Besides, bringing  
complex software onto a complex system, doesn't make it more secure. It's  
then more the opposite.
