 there are no valid issues being voiced? Or...?
 > I did not encounter the loops that people are talking about. If I had I
 would have had one of the engineers fix that problem.  The biggest thing I
 encountered was that our "one CAPTCHA per site modulo circuit change" code
 wasn't working and I fixed it. I'd like to get this to a point where Tor
 users are not in pain and during our CAPTCHA testing we found some
 problems which were fixed.

 We'd all like that - I'd really like it if it was CAPTCHA free entirely
 until there is a POST request, for example. A read only version of the
 website, rather than a CAPTCHA prompt just to read would be better
 wouldn't it?

 > It would be *very* helpful if someone were able to reproduce the CAPTCHA
 loop thing so we can address it. I will get an engineer to take look and
 see if we can reproduce internally.

 How many people are actively testing with Tor Browser on a daily basis for
 regressions? Does anyone use it full time?
