WebDriver Headless Browser Tutorial

WebDriver Headless Browser is the concept of running web browser based tests but in an invisible browser. When you run a test using Selenium WebDriver a browser window is opened in which you can visually see your http calls being made as well as interactions with your given web page. When running in a headless state your tests still run but the web browser page does not open.

  1. Hi Shahin ,
    I have going through your protractor and cucumber videos.
    I have a small suggestion I could be better if you have increase the font size while writing the code or identify the element , it is difficult to figure it out.

    I like your videos

      Many thanks for your comment. I have revisited my blog and have started to make some improvements. I hope that this would help to make things a little more clear.

      Best,
