All of you must have encountered the situation where in you have to enter a verification code generally consisting of a combination of letters and numbers. This process is technically known as CAPTCHA – completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart. And this is used to prevent spam and malicious bots to attack your webpage. The above site is based on the same principle but is more fun and easy as it incorporates the use of images for verification. Thus it helps in preventing attacks such as comment spam, registration spam, scrapers from stealing email address, securing online polls, servers getting bogged down by SPAM and malicious scripts. The site has many other good features such as:

Editor’s view :

The site is a very promising site which offers its users a whole lot of very good features. The site basically targets the site developers who for a long time have been using text based CAPTCHA for verification and provides them with an option to switch to the image based CAPTCHA. A very well developed site. A must for all the site developers.
