Update: This now redirects to https://why-solve-a-recaptcha.to-connect.top/ . Don't worry, it still has the "fun" slow fade captcha but now it has information on why ReCaptcha is bad and how to switch away!
@Sylvhem It's infinite. The only difference between this and real ReCaptcha is real ReCaptcha will eventually just lock you out completely.
@easrng that's nearly it, but after finally managing to select all the matching fire hydrants reCAPTCHA just says "Please try again." and gets you to select trucks
@easrng and if you're using a VPN or something... be prepared for the ultra grainy, even slower, even longer version
@easrng captchas kinda suck as a turing test, since computers can sometimes complete them especially now with AI and image recognition being more available than at any time in history
@maemiddlename not to mention you can pay like less than 2 cents a captcha to get them solved on 2captcha or something.
@easrng I wish there were more viable alternatives to ReCaptcha. I tried HCaptcha once but as you pointed out their accessibility system really doesn't work like they think it does. Which leaves only FriendlyCaptcha. There must be more!
@objectinspace There's https://hashcash.io but it takes a long time to solve and the site says they are going to turn it into a cryptominer. There's also https://crypto-loot.org/captcha but that *is* a cryptiminer and is frequently blocked as such. You're right, there need to be more options in this space.
I love how recaptcha has the images fade in slowly
isn't the whole image sent by then, so you're *only* serving to piss off people (and anyone using screen scrapers, I guess)
@easrng thanks for acknowledging hcaptcha isn't much better. Many people seem to think it's the best thing since sliced bread, but in my experience as a screen reader user blocking cross site cookies it's even worse.
