Is my firewall really worth it?
I was previously using Comodo Firewall free version but because it's too good* I switched to ZoneAlarm Free. I've noticed significantly slower Internet speeds after using it and after doing a couple tests at speedtest.net I found that the firewall is restricting my download speeds by over 2mbps and my upload by over 100kbps.
Is it really worth it using this firewall? I don't really like waiting for pages for load any longer then I have to, and it feels quite slow compared to Comodo. If there's any good free firewalls you guys know could you let me know?
*Seriously, it gives you a pop up message for every single little thing you can imagine.
