By all means, try using your own homemade jimmy rigged web browser to connect to the tor network. See how far you get before you reach a captcha wall. Even if the Tor network is not approved, the browser it's running on (firefox) certainly is. The retard OP was complaining about browsers, implying that the monopoly of Mozilla and Google makes using an underground hipster browser like Tor impossible, utterly oblivious to the fact he's still stuck in the Mozilla/Google bubble. Fucking reading comprehension.

Anyway, why in the fuck isn't there an open source, non-javascript captcha alternative? Why is JS needed to prevent spam?


 No.969953

>>969942

this isn't a tor specific problem, genius. i'm using palememe with literally no plugins, which I assume would get the same error if i took off tor.

>>969947

up until maybe a few months ago, you could solve the new recaptcha without JS, and it was much easier. i'm talking about people with no cookies or tor users (the story is different for a good goy who has a 10 year session with google and doesn't have to do anything aside tick a box). people would block JS on recaptcha so they get the easier non-JS version

why the fuck. how is it going 88.5KB/s if it hasn't advanced by a single KB in the last hour? this happens in firefug too, and happened in firefug 5 years ago, and happened in firefug 10 years ago. how the fuck is a simple bug like this still not fixed? this shit is fucking retarded, it takes a day for me to realize some download is stuck and restart it.

There's probably some sites you can't avoid it, because the site is 100% javashit that generates randomized links for every file, and it's all hidden behind a bunch of obfuscated javashit. So you can't just copy/paste the download link to wget or something, because wget doesn't parse javashit, and even if it did it would probably be missing a bunch of javashit pieces that the web browser loaded earlier.


 No.970454

Reminder that current web standards and (((w3c))) are to blame for this.

A modern web browser is required to run way to many fucking things to the point that to be called a web browser would require bloat.

Almost fucking every browser you see is either a fucking firecucks fork, jewgle controlled blink, or lasty fucking amature webkit/webengine browser.

Even fucking suckless surf is bloat.

Out of fucking everything webkit is the biggest mistake of the modern internet.

It convences new devs to flock to it because it's easier,

It has all the features of your most basic bitch browser, but it also provides none of the real world functionality that is needed in a browser.

You can't just turn something in one of these browsers, you have to make some long and retarded hack around to get anything to work.

Qutebrowser is a good example of what i mean, half the functionality he's working on is massive fucking hacks around a flawed engine.

bump cuz im angry and need to shit on something

firefug and it's forks (at least palememe) have a bug where they get in this mode where they go to fullscreen every time you switch to a different window and back. sounds like it may be from disk corruption (e.g losing power), which is a typical problem that is too hard for the webnigger mind to comprehend

also you can't use ctrl+shift+{pgup,pgdown} to move an about:config tab around when the focus of that tab is inside the preferences list (e.g you just clicked on network.http.sendRefererHeader [sic])

that's the worst. these faggots who do IP blocking should at least be smart eough to know that it's not always your fault if your IP is blocked. and then accordingly they should properly design their shit to deliver the block message before wasting the user's time with a captcha or whatever other rituals they feel like imposing. but most nignogs these days cant even into graceful degradation
