One suggestion: Test this on a network which dishes out IPv6 addresses.
None of these Firewall apps seem to take IPv6 into consideration. So if
you wander onto a WiFi network which dishes out v6 addresses and then
one of your Apps tries to connect to a host which supports v6, like for
example Google or Facebook, then it will bypass your iptables rules.
You need to set up rules using ip6tables for IPv6 too.

Also, make sure that the rules are applied prior to any network
connectivity coming up.
