This can has nozzle and straw to insert in it, make sure straw taped to the can when you buy the can.
Or, may be you see different manufacturers and some have cans with built-in "straw"? Well, honestly, it doesn't make difference - straw insert or built-in.
Difference only in product quality and how to use it - this cans have 4 different types of foam : yellow foam (will become hard and very sticky - you can't clean it very well from the surface if you miss the spot or have drips on floor) - for big gaps, yellow foam which will become hard but more mild than other , and that one hard to clean up too - for small gaps, both of them require gloves to work with;
and white (I think, brand call DAP) foam, which will stay flexible and not strong, easy to damage and NOT waterproof - for gaps what should have flexible seal or for tight spaces where important cleanliness after work, easy to clean-up and you may not wear gloves if you don't want to.
And in similar cans but with different label there was yellow \or orange? fireproof foam, which I never use so not sure how it looks like or what special to work with.

It is not like the older type of caulking. It can be removed but you will need to put in a lot more effort. it is easier to get the larger parts it off with a knife, file or something rough, and then use a putty knife to scrape the rest off. rather than come off in larger pieces like the older putty, it is harder to get off like the newer silicon caulk.

Answer: 
Not easily. This stuff sticks like glue so it's tedious to remove -- I wouldn't use for a temporary fix unless I lined the area where it's going with plastic (checking first that the foam doesn't eat through plastic). The old-fashioned solution to window gaps is folded paper -- works like a champ and easy to remove in the spring.

It is not conductive. I have used it around electrical boxes to stop air flow (both hot and cold). If you get some on the wires, it is not a problem, but it is very difficult to get it off the wires - don't spray it inside the electrical box - no it is not a fire or shock hazard, it's just, it will be almost impossible to work on the wires or add wires in the future.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 377 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! This is a great product for filling smaller gaps. For really large ones I would use fiberglass insulation. We used several cans of this foam sealant when installing new windows and doors. The big caution is this: it can drip on surfaces where you don’t want it, so if you are using it indoors it’s smart to cover the floor with cardboard. At one point we forgot to cover the floor and some foam hit the tile. Trying to remove it when wet is a big mistake. It smears and makes the situation worse. It is better to wait until the foam is hard and dry, and then carefully scrape it up. When using it outside (as shown in the photo) we were less concerned with covering surfaces. Some foam dripped in three places on the pavement and we scraped it up, but if the concrete had been rather rough we would have covered it because the foam leaves traces behind due to the uneven texture. Once the foam is dry it is easy to trim away excess. Before you start your project, take a look around your house to see if you have any holes that need filling, because once you open the can either use it all or toss it. We had some left over and used it to fill some annoying small gaps and holes. Overall this is a great product and I would recommend it. May 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product, medium expansion Worked well, I used it to fill a door I made for a strange size opening. It expands less then the Red Can of expanding foam August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 16 oz window and door insulating foam sealent The product is good, but the can/applicator kept leaking from the nozzle and towards the end of the bottle the nozzle broke off the bottle. I have used this product before and have not had a problem. I think this one was defective. I does seal very well! July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sealer Works far better than fiberglass at stopping all air from coming in. Just be careful of not overfilling cavities so you don't make a huge mess. July 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the extra price We normally use the much less expensive red can version. When doing doors, windows, or anywhere excessive expansion will cause a bad fit, the blue can version is far better. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good product for around windows and doors, but has its issues I love expanding foam insulation, but my main issue with this incarnation is that while it is slow expanding, it seems to expand overly too much. Alternately, I am not good at judging how much I need to spray under a window sill or next to a window. It's not that the foam distorts the frame when it expands, but it just seems to keep coming out of the opening. My caveat would be to use it carefully. The bummer is that once you start spraying, you can't stop and come back later with the same can. That means you can't spray a little...wait 10 minutes to see how it expands, and then spray again. So be careful with this. It won't distort windows, but if you put too much in, it will be like the expanding foam monster just paid you a visit. June 14, 2016
