> Binisoft Firewall is based Win7 firewall
It is essentially a GUI front-end to the Windows Firewall.
It does not provide firewall "services", it only makes it easier to do something more with you have already been given. There is nothing that it does that you cannot do yourself with Windows provided facilities - albeit with greater difficulty.

Actually I believe that it defaults to inbound only, but in any case...

Again that is with the pay version.
The free does not alert, but if you know that an application is looking for access, you are provided means to allow it.

Uses .NET 4 (I'm pretty sure it was, yes!) & the GUI itself had been lethargic, in particular its first opening, but has improved over time.

Again Binisoft is nothing but a front-end. You are using Windows Firewall entirely.

Edit: confirmed need for .NET 4
