Script Summary: Smarter and faster than a dictionary lookup bot: this script tricks the site into giving you the same word each time while removing the "too many requests" error; the result is a very fast and very efficient way to methodically end world hunger.
Just go to freerice.com and answer the first question to initialize the script. For maximum efficiency, you should consider disabling CSS (View > Page Style > No style) and images (Tools > Options > Content > Load images automatically) on the page in order to increase load speed. I can get up to 4000+ grains of rice per minute using this on a single browser tab (though for me it tends to average out at about 3200 over time). I'd be interested to see how fast others (particularly those with faster connections) can get it to go.
Note: You must be playing the "English vocabulary" subject for this script to work.
- October 5, 2008: Updated the script after FreeRice changed their code a bit, causing the script to be nothing but a rampant bruteforcer. It now works again.
