doesn't slow down my pc, and does what it's supposed to do, not more, not less. allow me to block all programs and then whitelist by picking a window and a .exe file. I want want it to have the ability to prompt me for the first time a program is connecting to the Internet, so that I don't have to whilelist manually. And it's free! (actually I'm willing to pay if it's not). See More
... which hardens security, altough this can be viewed as a con by some. If the user doesn't take an action to allow a program (TinyWall asks before allowing that) to "go out", it won't automatically allow it, as some other firewall programs do. However, this feature is probably the best of it because it will never allow any malicious software to start, even if it was downloaded on the user's computer. See More
I love that it's a free service and I don't to pay up See More
If, for example, you have to use a script that might download some tools (e.g. installs Rust), the easiest way is to enable the Learning mode. In that mode any application without rule can connect but it is logged as new rule (for later verification). An option is missing to allow all applications/processes which were launched as the current one, including all child processes. See More
When wondering why some application behaves wrong, it's not easy to remember that the TinyWall might be the reason - because there was no rule yet for the specified application. For firewalls that show a notification, this could be connected more easily. See More

Rick Shepherd's Experience
Most experienced (amateur) users use just a frontend application beside Windows Firewall like TinyWall, Glasswire, Windows Firewall Control. If you don't want to bother and spend a lot of time tweaking: use solely the integrated Windows Firewall. Wilders Security Forums can be used to learn and know about the lastest trends. See More
