Why does Google think I'm a robot?

Asked by andrew (16358points) February 20th, 2008

Ever since I upgraded to Leopard, I can’t google search from Safari’s menubar without google saying, “Oh, hey there, robot! Prove yourself!” I’m tired of filling out captchas; what can I do to assert my humanity?

Have you considered the possibly that you are, in fact, a robot?

I have had the problem on occasion with my Internet Explorer also. It was dependant on the subject I was googling. Maybe robots tend to ask the same sort of questions.
