No captcha from my regular browsing profile on that site, so there's probably something in your setup making you "bot-like" or otherwise suspicious.

Recently eBay gave me one on login and the fucker would go through an endless cycle and the images never made any sense based on the question.
Now eBay is using a different captcha that makes a lot more sense. It's just a puzzle piece you slide into place.

The reason why eBay was now giving me a captcha was due to my headers and what not I change for privacy. So I in fact looked like a bot.

We can't get rid of the Captchas, it's an important security feature to protect us from bots and hackers.
Captchas aren't the only ways to protect yourself from bots. Captchas also don't protect against hackers because hackers are human and can solve captchas.
...and reCaptcha isn't the only captcha system out there. Many alternatives are better at thwarting non-legitimate users than Google's captcha system WITHOUT biasing site access heavily towards Chrome.
Everything you said is 100% true. It is also irrelevant and you are completely missing the point.

You cannot control what websites do.
You cannot control what Google does.
You cannot control what captcha system they use or how the captchas work.

But there is one thing that you CAN control.

You can control how Palemoon works.

When I go to these websites using Firefox I almost never have a captcha problem.
This proves that the problem CAN be solved.
If Firefox can do it then there is no reason why YOU can't do it also.

Well there is another thing we can't seem to control and that is the fact that people keep writing Pale Moon incorrectly.

Also, Google ALLOWS Firefox to "work" 100% of the time. In order for that to be the case with us we would have to identify soley as Firefox and respond to anything AS Firefox and support every arbitrary feature Firefox does. Becoming virtually if not exactly identical to Firefox. How can we do this and still NOT be Firefox hmm? Guess that didn't figure into your small minded petty conclusion. Did it?

No, you just want it all without thought, consideration, or responsibility. If you aren't happy with or the features unique to our offerings aren't enough for you then why aren't you JUST using Firefox then?

As an aside, I hardly ever have to solve Google catpchas getting insta-checkmark just about everytime over the past few years so the question is.. What are you doing wrong? Other than, of course, still incorrectly typing the name of the browser after five years of usership.

Well?

It must have realized you've been acting suspicious lately and in need of extra steps just to annoy you! :P
