THE PRELOADER HAS ALREADY INVOKED A CONNECTION AND CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET.MEANING EVEN THOUGH NO PROGRAMS ARE BYPASSING YOUR FIREWALL FIREFOX IS STILL AN OPEN PORT AND SECURITY RISK.I MONITOR MY TCP/IP CONNECTION AND WHEN I HALT ALL THE INTERNET ACCESSABLE PROGRAMS THE CONNECTION CLOSES.SAY THAT I CLOSE WINWORD AFTER I CONNECTED IT FROM THE INTERNET......THE PROGRAM CLOSES AND THE CONNECTION STOPS......NOT SO WITH FIREFOX PRELOADER.....WHEN YOU END YOUR BROWSER SESSION BY BY CLOSING THE WEB PAGE........FIREFOX IS STILL CONNECTED.SO YOUR COMP IS EXPOSED TO COMPROMISE.SURE YOU CAN UNLOAD IT BUT RELOADING IT JUST SENDS IT TO THE TASK TRAY NOT TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET.I CAN LEAVE ALL MY INTERNET ACCESSIBLE PROGRAMS IN THE TASK TRY AS A RUNNING PROCESS AND WHEN I CLICK THE ICON INSTANT CONNECTION........BUT WAIT THEY ALREADY HAVE INSTANT CONNECTION AND INSTANT CLOSE PORT CONNECTION WHEN I END IT.SO YEA NOT GOOD, BIG DEAL, SO WHAT........!

Pros
  • EXTREMELY FAST ON MY COMPUTER.........ONLY BECAUSE THE PRELOADER IS ALL READY CONNECTED
  • TO THE NET.
  • DO YOU GET IT?
  • IT'S JUST LIKE OPENING TWO INSTANCES OF FIREFOX WHERE THE SECOND INSTANCE WEB PAGE JUMPS
  • UP ON SCREEN.
Cons
  • BIG SECURITY RISK KEEPING AN OPEN CONNECTION ON WHERE YOU THINK ITS OK TO HIBERNATE, OR YOUR SCREEN SAVER RUNNING WHILE YOU'RE OCCUPIED ELSEWHERE,OR JUST DOING WORK ON YOUR DESKTOP.
  • I USE ZONE ALARM AND A HAVE EVERY INTERNET ACCESSIBLE PROGRAM TO ASK PERMISSION.
  • I STOP EVERY PROGRAM THAT ACTS AS A PROCESS RUNNING - THEY CAN BE STARTED MANUALY.
  • AND EVERY PROGRAM WHEN I'M THROUGH I'LL CLOSE IT THEN THE CONNECTION CLOSES.......BUT NOT SO WITH FIREFOX PRELOADER!
