Web visum, my thoughts : April 28, 2011

So, I’ve known about the Firefox program for quite awhile, and their various addons and plugins for some time. I’ve also known about Web Visum for some time as well. The problem was, I was relying on Solona for all my captcha needs, and recently have found it difficult to find them online when I need captchas solved. So over the weekend of April 24, 2011, I decided to investigate web visum. I’ve visited the page a few times, and never really followed through on it. If you want to hear about Solona, ask me for that podcast, I still have it in the collection BTW. But back to web visum. I signed up after finding where to ask for a code, which they E-mailed me back quickly.

Most recently after playing with it a bit, I decided to work on my new Magnatune page and downloaded a couple of artists which i’ve heard before. One CD set, the other one CD, and one CD I thought I had before. Magnatune has a captcha after so many downloads to prevent automated bots from signing up. I had checked prior to this that Solona was offline, and sure enough, they are at the time of writing.

So, Web Visum, to the rescue. I fired the command to solve a captcha. For some reason, I didn’t get feedback, so fired the command again, and it told me I was too quick. The first captcha was not solved correctly maybe because my error. But the second one was. I thought, cool.

Then I needed to reset my password for my You Tube account. Those captchas are the biggest problem even for Solona to solve at times, so I fired the command and waited, and sure enough, it solved that captcha. I’ve heard about its success, and deciding that Solona isn’t always around, i needed something reliable.

Bernard at Solona is great, we’ve not talked for awhile, but thats ok. We all get busy. I hope Solona is doing well, and since it is a volunteer project, that it goes well. However, web visum is really the way to go.

  1. You must be running firefox. This will not work with Internet Explorer, Chrome, or any other browser.
  2. They have other tools like hiding flash, blocking domains, underlining links, and more.
  3. The changes you make to a page like labeling links, labeling pages, and soforth are sent to their server and everyone gets the changes.
  4. There is a place to block a domain, not sure how that works as of yet, but it may block the ability to block it which could be good for sites that are melicious.
  5. This plugin is free.

In over all experience to date, I would rate it very good. I know I’ve not played with everything, but I did try the hide flash for Magnatune and it worked good. In the comments, please let me know how you’ve enjoyed Web Visum, and how it has or has not worked for you.

The opinions are those of the poster, and not those of jaredrimer.net or its partners and web hosting facilities. We can’t help the fact there may be strong language, etc. when viewing the comments here.

Happy commenting. The disclaimer is to protect me, cause these types of things can get heated, and I’m leaving myself and my web provider and people who help me out of the fact we have our opinions and they aren’t responsible what you write. Thanks for reading!
