Google image redirects suk! :x

this :( Error creating thumbnail @ FreeSpace Wiki

Personally I would have placed the wiki on a separate domain/server. It was no small feat to create that library of all things freespace. Kudos to the community =D>

So, this 2 year old video is still very relevant . It's the exact same thing.

I guess Google just don't give a f### about this issue, and continue to break the Internet even more than they already have with their sh###y,ad-laden, spam filled data collecting search engine.

Was logging into an online book store and was presented with a captcha recently... annoying as f*ck if you get it wrong and why do I have to verify in 3 steps - one after the other.

According to a github issue, apparently if you have tracking protection enabled and third party cookies disabled, the reCaptcha doesn't go through properly (it gets stuck in an almost infinite loop of failed attempts). You have to turn these both on for it to work properly - and they seem to hate Firefox based browsers even more so.

Google refuses to work properly with other company's browsers. What the f### is this, the late 90s?
