Headless Browsing

What is Headless Browsing?

A web browser without a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is referred to as a headless browser. Because browsers without a GUI operate more quickly because they do not need to draw visual content, they are mostly utilized by software test engineers. The ability of headless browsers to function on servers without GUI support is one of its main advantages. Typically, headless browsers are run from the command line or through network connectivity. Web page testing is the most typical use case for headless browsers. Headless browsers can read and comprehend HTML pages just like any other browser. They show various stylistic components, such as colors, typefaces, layouts, etc.
