I’m a couple days late in posting this, but this is huge news. Not requiring a dongle or hub for IoT devices is the way it should be.
This new “No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA” (try saying that three times fast) judges you instantaneously with a “risk analysis engine” that considers miscellaneous bits like your IP address and the movements of your mouse cursor to see if you’re actually made of flesh and blood. In the event that you don’t pass muster the first time ’round, you’ll have to sit through a more traditional CAPTCHA complete with those all-too-familiar screwy words and numbers.
An interesting approach, but isn’t it a shame that this requires such profound engineering in the first place?
If your website is 15MB it’s not HTML5, it’s stupid.
