Two-way firewall coming soon? Windows should be resizeable; larger text size.

Hello,
I noticed that even the 2013 version of the Webroot software still rely on the Windows firewall for incoming connections monitoring and only check outgoing connections.  I was reading the review on PCMAG and apparently, Webroot is planning a full two-way firewall. I hope this firewall is complete, in the sense that it also detects web exploits?
 
Thanks,
John

There are no plans for creating a two-way firewall at this time. The Windows firewall handles inbound traffic very well, and in versions since XP, it's very customizable. WSA can interact with the Windows firewall in useful ways, so duplicating the functionality is not needed.
