Some of the improvements include UNICODE paths, support for HTTP and HTTPS proxy protocols on the same Socks4/Socks5 port with HTTP header filtering that generates fake identity-dependent headers every time the identity is changed (proxy chains are also supported), support for NTLM proxies, a User Interface that makes Tor's options and actions more accessible, local banlist for forbidden addresses, private identity isolation, a point-and-click process interceptor that can redirect connections from programs that don't support proxies, also giving them fake information about the local system and support for .onion addresses. Also, it can estimate AS paths for all circuits and prevent AS path intersections, it can restrict circuits to be built using only nodes from different countries, can change circuit lengths and more.

PeerGuardian - a privacy oriented firewall application
PeerGuardian is a privacy oriented firewall application. It blocks connections to and from hosts specified in huge blocklists (thousands or millions of IP ranges). Its origin seeds in targeting aggressive IPs while you use P2P. PeerGuardian Linux: Actively developed. However the team is very small and with few spare time. Contributors are welcome! Peerguardian OS X: Not developed anymore. We've lost contact with the OS X developer. New contributors are welcome! PeerGuardian Windows: Not developed anymore. It's highly recommended to use PeerBlock instead, which is a continuation of PeerGuardian's development in Windows, with bug fixes and support for Windows Vista and Windows 7. New contributors and/or collaboration with peerblock.com are welcome! PeerGuardian is an open project. Not only is its source code open for you to read, use, and modify - but the project is open for you to join and contribute in any form (code, documentation, bug reports, web and support).
Blocks "known bad" IP-addresses from accessing your machine, especially corporate/governmental agencies. This is a fork of PeerGuardian 2, fixing various Vista/Win7 problems.

Firewall configuration data is stored in a central file that can scale to hundreds of firewalls managed from a single UI. A message from project maintainers: After working on Firewall Builder for many years it is with some sadness that Vadim and I are announcing that we have suspended all development activity for this project. Firewall Builder has been a great project to work on and we have truly appreciated all the support and positive feedback that the user community has provided. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to keep things going this long. You might be wondering why we are doing this... We had an exciting opportunity come up to start a company developing advanced security automation solutions. This was a chance of a lifetime that we just couldn’t pass up and unfortunately it means that we no longer have time available to work on improv

BrazilFW is a mini Linux distribution designed to be used as a Firewall and Router that runs easily on older computers. An old PC running BrazilFW is much more powerful and efficient than commercial software for routing in offices and residences running on a "powerful" computer. BrazilFW is based on Coyote Linux, which was designed by Joshua Jackson who discontinued Coyote Linux in version 2.24 in August 2005. In that same month comes on the scene BrazilFW Firewall and Router (BFW) with version 2.24, which is led by "Claudio" and "Marcelo - Brazil", running only on floppy disks, and being 2.30.1 the last version with this support . The following versions, as well having automatic detection of network cards, only run on large capacity media, such as hard disk (HD). Versions in Development: * 2.33.x: Uses kernel 2.4.x and is developed by Marcinho Samurai. * 3.x: Uses kernel 4.x and is developed by WoshMan
