Speaking of user-friendly firewall software, Objective Development (the crew behind LaunchBar) has released Little Snitch 2.0:
Little Snitch informs you whenever a program attempts to establish an outgoing Internet connection. You can then choose to allow or deny this connection, or define a rule how to handle similar, future connection attempts. This reliably prevents private data from being sent out without your knowledge.
I don’t run Little Snitch all the time, but when I want it, I’m glad it’s there.
