CAPTCHA has protected websites from spam for a few years now, whether you love it or hate it, CAPTCHA does what it says on the tin.

Well, new Google have updated things a little, thus creating reCAPTCHA.

CAPTCHA’s aim was to protect the websites you use from spam and abuse from bots.

This enable you to go about your daily online lives without any worry that you are fighting for server space with a robot or a script written by an unsavory figure.

It has become a burden for most of us for years now, because we have always been prompted to confirm that we are not a robot, by entering a bunch of distorted text into a text box.

It has been called ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA’, here is a quick look at it.
