  • --no-zygote: was a actually a solution to the zombie processes spawning in my puppeteer-cluster
  • --no-xshm: I had similar issues (running multiple concurrent Chrome in the same container) in the past that were resolved with this


  • --window-position: Hide while still being headful, useful when you can't use Xvfb.--window-position=-10000,10000
