‘Lifehacker’ Votes Best Firewall for Windows
Jersey City, N.J. — Oct. 22
Readers of “Lifehacker,” a Web lifestyle blog owned by Gawker Media, voted Comodo Firewall Pro the best Windows firewall available on the Web. As part of the blog’s regular “High Five” feature, which asks readers to select the best five products for a service and then vote on the best, Comodo received nearly 31 percent of the 3,400 votes cast, nearly 400 votes more than the standard Windows Firewall, which came in second.
The “High Five Call for Contenders” feature, which has become a staple of the blog since March, lets users nominate the best products for a service, and then vote on the five that receive the most recommendations.
“Lifehacker,” which receives about 20 million visitors a month and has been named by Time magazine as one of their “25 Sites We Can’t Live Without,” has become a popular online source for lifestyle improvement and enhancement of the online experience.
