Well, as most things in life we update our own opinions about something after we use it, and that is a reality with software. Ive given before a good avaliation on "Murus Suite", but Ive download "HandsOff 4.0.1" for a trial run under macos 10.14.1 and well, im using it now, becoming the outgoing firewall of my Choice. Thanks "insmac.org" for this software !.

UPDATED INFO This last couple of days were really problematic with several macos 10.4.1 panic crases../ total BLACK screen. ::-( and all related to this software...

So i reinstalled "Little Snitch 2.3.3." oficial version for "peace of mind".
It costed 47.25 € from its German developer.
Just a curious fact, the dmg package of "LS" has 41,1 Mb, "HO" 7,21 Mb...

NEW UPDATE (hope the last concerning outgoing firewalls in macOS 10.14.1.).
Ive written all this comments because i truly think that we must share with others, what happenened with ourselfs as mac users.
I was ready to buy "LS" as Ive said before as i was truly frustasted with "HO"...as my MacBook Pro started to become a bit, in these last days, like those "WinPC" of the recent past...most of the time crasing....
So, ive made the right decision, reinstalling "MURUS Suite" THAT IS RUNNING EVER SINCE WITHOUT any problem whatsoever !.
Hope this info can help other users.
