Jersey City, NJ, October 22, 2008 - Readers of Lifehacker (lifehacker.com), the enormously popular web lifestyle blog owned by Gawker Media, voted Comodo Firewall Pro the best Windows Firewall available on the web. As part of Lifehacker's regular High Five Feature, which asks readers to select the best five products for a service and then vote on the best, Comodo received nearly 31% of the 3400 votes cast, nearly 400 votes more than the standard Windows Firewall, which came in second.
"I've used several different firewalls and COMODO catches everything coming in or going out," one Lifehacker commenter noted. "It's prevented several of my applications from accessing the internet when I don't want them to." Another commenter noted, "I used ZoneAlarm for a good, long time... then reverted back a few versions because the newer ones were getting bloated. I finally switched to Comodo and never looked back."
Lifehacker's High Five Call for Contenders feature, which has become a staple of the blog since March, lets users nominate the best products for a service, and then vote on the five that receive the most recommendations. In addition to receiving more votes than Windows Firewall, Comodo Firewall Pro beat out ESET Security Software, ZoneAlarm, and the standard built in firewall of routers to win LifeHackers High Five best Windows firewall competition.
