Report misleading

NetBalancer is a handy application designed to monitor your computer's network activity and to restrict the use of Internet channels by individual programs. The program will be especially useful for those who have a slow connection to the network. For example, NetBalancer allows you to reduce to zero the probability of such a situation: you start a browser and try to load a web page, but face a lack of connection speed due to the fact that the antivirus has started downloading updates for the virus database.

As it follows from the previous paragraph, this program will help to avoid various "brakes" when working in the network. At the same time, fast Internet connection owners can use this application as a tool to monitor the amount of incoming and outgoing traffic.

- allows you to assign not only restrictions, but also the priority of using the Internet channel;

- is very good at monitoring network activity;

- knows how to work with a group of programs;

- has a very user-friendly interface, understandable even for a child.

Software UI looks outdated but usually that is the case for anything that will be primarily used by tech minded folks. I think the functionality is pretty solid for home machines, most software like this is meant for enterprise setups. I think this would meet the needs of the home network user. I think the way features are laid out clearly understand their target audience, it would certainly drive away someone that has no use for this software, which is good. I do think that this could sell the use case of this software better. Perhaps there is a network admin reading the site description but can't justify the price for their home, it would help to have some examples as to how people use this at home. If there is a section like this, I'm unable to find it.
