  • PROS
    Stealths ports to protect against outside attack. Controls which programs can access network. Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) flags suspicious program behaviors. Virtual desktop and secure browser. Free.


  • CONS
    HIPS flags both good and bad programs. In testing, Website Filter didn't block any malware-hosting URLs. Automatic sandboxing disabled by default. No protection against exploit attacks.


  • BOTTOM LINE
    Comodo Firewall 10 has a bold new look, but it's not just a pretty face. Under the hood, it includes full firewall protection along with a variety of related security features

doesn't windows firewall and/or a home router do that sufficiently well?
Yes.

Yes - if you are behind NAT router at home behind a properly configured\capable NAT router.

Behind a capable NAT router, you have to set-up port-forwarding for the security soft firewall for "Stealth Ports" and the firewall to be relevant.

If you use public wifi then it is relevant\important - and it is conservative to assume that the public wifi hotspot\router isn't properly configured.
