Overview

Surf the Web as YandexBot. Ever wondered what the YandexBot get’s to see online that you do not?

Refuse To Be Human is a simple web extension which changes your browser’s user agent to that of the Yandex bot. Yandex bot is a web crawler which surfs the web extensively to build a searchable index for the Yandex search engine (making it - together with Googlebot - one of the most influential Internet users. Only what it sees is indexed and can later be found by other users through Yandex search, the most popular search engine in Russia). By changing your settings to match those of Yandex bot, you become one of thousands of Yandex web crawlers browsing the web to index its contents. Surfing the web as Yandex bot gives you access to what is referred to as the grey web, a layer of content only visible to bots. In some cases it might give you access to websites and archives that are usually hidden behind a paywall. Because while the website owner will present the regular user with a login page, they will give web crawlers access to their full archive in order for it to be represented in Yandex’s search results. Step 1: 💻 Install the web extension Step 2: 📡 To start surfing as Yandex bot, click on the new icon in the browser toolbar Step 3: 🏄🏾‍♀️ Surf your favourite websites Step 4: 🌐 Check RYBN's Double Negative Capchas to see if you pass the bot test. http://www.rybn.org/projects/1000scores/ (You might have to take the test twice until it works.) Step 5: 🖱 Also download 1000 Bots, the addon that enables you to surf the webs as Googlebot https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/1000-bots/ecpdhlloflbgbfjklnpedhiapeckiapa You can compare the two bot-experiences Refuse to be human is an art piece by !Mediengruppe Bitnik commissioned by Transmediale and Open Berlin.
