 > 0. We fixed the bug that caused a new CAPTCHA to be served for a site
 when the circuit changes.

 This is unlikely to help. As mentioned earlier, Tor Browser will use a
 different circuit and a different cookie for each domain name. Users will
 continue to be required to solve thirty different CAPTCHAs a day for each
 blog, news sites, and other service providers they visit.

 To make an uneasy parallel, this is like street harassment. Men harassing
 women can happily think it's nothing because they are only doing it once,
 while women have to endure tens (or more) harassers every single day. It
 adds up fast.

 Please see by yourself: use Tor Browser as your sole browser. The beautify
 of trying to create an anonymity set is that the software is likely to
 make the experience pretty similar to all users.
