Sometimes you accidentally add a rule (often you click on a bunch of then), and you quickly want to undo it, for example when I accidentally also disabled a subdomain that server CSS for a webpage. The 24-hour option comes close I guess, but it still means I have to search for the rule. A big "undo last rule" button might also be useful, perhaps even as an option in the menubar icon's dropdown.

For example, Chrome wants to phone home a lot, and I would like to block that. But after I have tamed Chrome, I want to allow access to all other websites and let browser plugins (umatrix, ublock) take care of taming those.
hummingdrone wrote:- The Research Assistant is really handy, but it would be useful to also look at the specific domains the applications connect to. For example, with Chrome I'd like to have details on some of the servers it tries to connect to.

hummingdrone wrote:- In the overview, I would like to be able to quickly allow or disallow a connection by clicking on the green and red dots. Currently, I have to open the pop-up for the rule, and then select the new status in a dropdown, and then hit save. That's a lot of clicks for something so vital.
hummingdrone wrote:- I'd like to have a page or icon bar or something along those lines that allows me to quickly toggle access for a select few programs that I want to block most of the time, but sometimes want to allow access for a little while. For example, I almost never install anything from the app store, so I want to block this chatty program. But once in a blue moon I'd like to give it access for a short time when I actually need to buy an app from it.
- I would like it to be able to be integrated with those white/blacklists you can find online. That way I can just instantly block most common tracking websites, so that my browser plugins have less work to do.

ctwise wrote:3. Allow rules to be merged. Selecting a range of compatible rules and right-clicking on them to merge them into one rule, e.g., a group of rules listing different DNS or IP entries for the same app.

- alert timer starts immediately, does not turn off with mouse movement or app focus
- have a choice of Escape to deny, Return to accept
That would allow me to:
- deny connections while doing something else
- quickly accept and deny connections
