There's some work to do yet here ( no kidding I hear you say!) but, to get us started here are some free bits!

However what this little tool does makes the firewall even more secure and versatile. It lets you switch between 4 different filtering modes right from your system tray, This version, version 5 also lets you display the type of connection your using. Another cool thing is that you can check IP addresses and URLs, setup keyboard shortcuts, and create custom rules which block particular programs and types of connection.
