    I used to have Netbarrier X5, but now there's the 2013 version. It was a really good one and I wish the one I had worked with Mavericks, but it doesn't. Does anyone know of any other really good ones? I would rather not pay for another one. Thanks!

    Why not use the firewall built into OSX? System Preferences, Security & Privacy, Firewall.

    Because it's not complete protection. When I had Netbarrier, it caught stuff the built in one didn't, and I just read an article today about it not being completely thorough.

    Thought about it, I actually just installed Hands Off! I'll try this one out for awhile and see how it is.
