Blowfish uses a Variable length key (32-448 bits) as compared to 56-Bit in DES.
It depends what key length you choose with "blowfish". As far as I know, with the same key length blowfish is faster
I would assume that security would depend on choosen key length, as it would take more effort to decode a message
encrypted with a larger key.
Some other encryption algorithms to consider are AES (secure as 3-DES and faster), IDEA (not free for commercial use).
