As an experiment I've tried using Tor Browser for everyday web browsing. Many sites either block me or ask me to complete endless Captchas.

I understand that by blocking ads/cookies/scripts etc.. that I don't look "normal", but even in Standard security mode with JavaScript fully enabled I find the browsing experience impossible on some major sites.

I understand that sites know my IP is a Tor exit node (and that some are behind Cloudflare/WAFs that block Tor on purpose), but when I'm doing normal human browsing it's strange to be accused of suspicious/automated behavior.

Are there techniques to mitigate being treated like a bot?

I notice that every domain name gets a different circuit. I presume this is also the case when multiple domains are serving a single webpage. Is there a way to disable that temporarily?
