Headless Chrome Takes QA Automation Scaling to New Heights

Printer-friendly version

One way of getting punished for success when creating detailed automated regression suites is long total runtime. If as part of a code check-in process in the cloud, you’d like to see you a robust set of regressions run, it could be sometimes hours before you can be sure the widest side of tests has come to conclusion. What if end to end test suites that had been booked to run for days or hours finish instead in an hour or even as little as few minutes? That’s the promise of Chromeless, which breaks down the browser into source components so it can run potentially in a massively parallel way, without the visualization layer overhead. Joel Griffith has put together a great survey piece on how to make this work AWS, Google Cloud, or for that matter any environment that can support Docker, including Azure.
