2024-02-13 user 0928524114 Not working even after latest update. New tab opens as shown on screenshot, sometimes fails to verify. Even if the new tab verifies, I have to verify once again on the site that requested it. So that's solving waiting two captchas each time to load and verify. The next time same story! What's the point then? Solving twice the amount of captchas and not even earning tickets for next captcha relief? No thanks. Useless addon made to waste users time.

2024-01-23 Firefox user 14881252 While the github has been updated since the last review claiming it might have been abandoned, it still doesn't work. The privacy pass page will pop up just as often as cloudflair normally would, and will in fact occasionally fail to properly identify you as human rather than a bot, making the extension entirely pointless

2023-12-06 Bobby Wibowo Has stopped working since the past few weeks. According to the people at GitHub it's indeed broken and will require fixing. Unfortunately there have been no Git commits ever since, so it might be an abandonware.
2023-11-20 lamewater772 Doesn't work. Still stuck in the endless "Verify you're human" loop. I'm going crazy
2023-11-15 Firefox user 17863214 Useless now. hCaptcha dropped support and Cloudflare appears to have done so as well. Any site protected by Cloudflare just goes into an endless loop of "Are you human?". It's a sad state of the usability of the web that such a plugin is needed in the first place.
