Personally I just want to try it out, see if it actually does work, as it's now just a check box for the majority of users. (as I understand it)
Correct. It probably checks things like how the button was clicked, IP address, http headers, etc to determine if they are a spam bot. If they look suspicious, then they are shown a captcha like normal. For most people not on VPNs or Tor will just have to check the box and be done
It would be nice to see phpBB update to the new captcha in it's official implementation as it doesn't seem to do any harm, and if Google keeps refining it, then it's only bound to get better.
