That was belated.
In early December I read this Google Online Security blog post about the new offerings that are in the works for the recaptcha api. New. Improved. Human friendly. With CATS!!! How marvelous is that?! (We all know how the internets loves them some kitty witty cats!! 😀 )
I haven’t played with it yet. I’ve been too busy chasing down server errors on a never ending project. 😐 But I like what they’re touting!
On websites using this new API, a significant number of users will be able to securely and easily verify they’re human without actually having to solve a CAPTCHA. Instead, with just a single click, they’ll confirm they are not a robot.
I think we’ll all agree that captcha and recaptchas time has come and long gone.
