Open chrome from command line

To start a new chrome window without any userl profile loaded run cmd and type:

start chrome

You can also simply call the run interface and type “chrome” then enter to have the same effect.

Now, more interesting, if you want to open a new chrome windows with an alternative profile, or simply a different user:

C:\Users\user1>runas /user:alternative_profile_name "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe"

replace “alternative_profile_name” with the user name you want to use. It is usefull if you engage in multilanguage SEO activity to have profile set with different languages as default. Or if you work in a different language that the one you use for your everyday account, you can have a “professional” profile setting with all the appropriate default.

You might also need to open Incognito window to check website without your browser cache. Emptying your cache everytime can be cumbersome, so you can simply open an incognito window:

start chrome /incognito

For that matter I rather use a Firefox developer installation set to not cache anything.

Adding Recaptcha to registration page on Laravel framework

In the app folder, create a Rules folder. Save the following code as GoogleRecaptcha.php:

namespace App\Rules;
use GuzzleHttp\Client;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Validation\Rule;
class GoogleRecaptcha implements Rule

     * Determine if the validation rule passes.
     * @param  string  $attribute
     * @param  mixed  $value
     * @return bool
    public function passes($attribute, $value)
	$data = array(
       		'secret' => env('GOOGLE_RECAPTCHA_SECRET'),
		'response' => @$_POST['g-recaptcha-response']
	$ch = curl_init($url);	
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
	curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query($data));
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
	$json = curl_exec($ch);
	$response = json_decode($json,true);
	if ($response['success'] != false) {
		return 'success';}
	else{return false;}
	#$response= $obj ->{"success"};
        #$response = $client->post('',
         #   [
          #      'form_params' => [
           #         'secret' => env('RECAPTCHA_SECRET_KEY', false),
            #        'remoteip' => request()->getClientIp(),
             #       'response' => $value
              #  ]
        #$body = json_decode((string)$response->getBody());
        #return $body->success;
     * Get the validation error message.
     * @return string
    public function message()
        return 'Are you a robot?';

In app/Http/Controllers/Auth/RegisterController.php

use App\Rules\GoogleRecaptcha;
 * Get a validator for an incoming registration request.
 * @param  array  $data
 * @return \Illuminate\Contracts\Validation\Validator
protected function validator(array $data)
    return Validator::make($data, [
        'name' => 'required|string|max:255',
        'email' => 'required|string|email|max:255|unique:users',
        'password' => 'required|string|min:6|confirmed',
        'g-recaptcha-response' => ['required', new GoogleRecaptcha]

Original code was with guzzle but it leads to the following issue:

Issue: “cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate (see”

in resources/views/auth/register.blade.php

Add in the registration form:

                        <div class="form-group row">
                             <div class="g-recaptcha offset-md-4 col-md-6"

in the views/layouts/app.blade.php or in the register.blade.php files add the following line:

<script src="" async defer></script>

In .env


to avoid issue with guzzle, let’s consider making the curl REST API call manually:

$jsonurl =""

The CURL manual call worked perfectly
