9 CAPTCHA Alternatives That Won’t Wreck Your UX. CAPTCHA stands for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart,” a name that encompasses its function and goal: a robot-administered test that verifies authentic users and weeds out evil bots that inject spam and harvest emails.
Since 2000, CAPTCHAs have been understood as annoying-but-bulletproof, but this understanding is being challenged today (at least the “bulletproof” part). One San Francisco-based startup has claimed to have created an algorithm that cracks CAPTCHAs with 90 percent accuracy.

Why Left Search Buttons Perform Faster Than Right Ones. By anthony on 11/11/10 at 8:50 pm Every website on the web today, places their search field before their search button.
