pfSense Review
The pfSense OS is stable, but if the service packages are not updated to their new version when the OS is updated, we can't use those features.

Hello Daida,

First of all which model you bought pfsense ? Some pfSense models are supporting multiwan some not but all of them supporting web filtering with squid3 or squid with squidGuard. You can make also user based restrictions with Firewall Rule or Squid LDAP, Radius, Kerberos. It's already supporting Active Directory Integration with LDAP.
