Google will release a new solution for keeping bots from logging on to your web site

Google is about to roll out an updated version of the company’s captcha protection that tries to determine whether a connection was made by a user or Mr. Roboto. Captchas are designed to separate between humans and bots. While sites may want to allow entrance to all human visitors, they may not be as forthcoming when it comes to bots.


Google’s reCAPTCHA Improves the CAPTCHA Verification Process

This is definitely a step in the right direction; hopefully, Google will take more steps in that same direction …

I hate CAPTCHAs, I really do. Those “verify that you are really a human and not a bot” widgets that Internet users encounter regularly when they sign up for new services, fill out comment forms or perform other activities on the Internet. The main issue that I have with the whole CAPTCHA technology is that they slow me down considerable. Not only do I have to decipher characters, it happens that you enter the wrong characters because the CAPTCHA is not clear enough.
