Google flags my IP as spam and forces me to enter captcha
I use both Firefox and Chrome. When I use Google as my search engine in Chrome I never face the bane of submitting Captchas or being flagged as a spam bot.
But on Firefox I get these captchas regularly and they're killing me. Is there a way around them? Is there a way I can prove permanently to Google that I'm a trusted IP?
I suspect that this is a nifty way of Google driving users away from Firefox. If you hate these captcha traps why would you persist in using Firefox (their thinking, perhaps)?
