Google launches new reCAPTCHA

Google recently announced that they will be replacing the annoying reCAPTCHA test with a simple “I am not a robot” check box. Captcha, standing for Completely Automated Public Turing test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart, is designed to prevent automated spamming of sites, by asking humans to type in distorted words or phrases.

CAPTCHAs often appear before a user can write a comment on a blog, create an account for a service, buy tickets for an event or fill out a “forgot password” form.
