- Fixed memory consumption problem.
So go and get your hands on the fresh release and update your installation.
If you still wonder what Little Snitch can do for you….
Little Snitch is some kind of Firewall and Network Traffic monitor which controlls the outgoing traffic of your applications. Freshly installed it will ask you to allow, deny or temporarily allow the traffic of certain applications. So you can see where your applications try get or send data in the internet. This is sometimes very interesting to see which applications when are trying to get internet access. If on doubt you should deny the traffic or only allow it for this session.
With the Little Snitch Network Monitor you can also have a glimpse on which application is currently consuming all your bandwith.
So Little Snitch is one of the most usefull programs on my Mac and thus the app. 30 € for the single seat license is absolutly OK with me.
