If you have enough Chrome Google related tabs open, Google will DoS G+ for you

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/03

I very often see the captcha. Today Google managed to DoS G+.

It happened right after RDP-ing into my work machine that has like ~100 research related tabs open of which about half are Google hosted pages.

G+ wouldn’t work as those tabs send so many G+ requests that Google effectively did a DoS on G+ for my IP-address and user (switching to another user was fine).

Google doing a DoS on G+ because all the open tabs generate G+ traffic
