Use Cases

  • Headless web testing. Lightning-fast testing without the browser is now possible! Various test frameworks such as Jasmine, Capybara, QUnit, Mocha, WebDriver, YUI Test, BusterJS, FuncUnit, Robot Framework, and many others are supported.
  • Page automation. Access and manipulate web pages with the standard DOM API, or with usual libraries like jQuery.
  • Screen capture. Programmatically capture web contents, including CSs, SVG and Canvas. Build server-side web graphics apps, from a screenshot service to a vector chart rasterizer.
  • Network monitoring. Automate performance analysis, track page loading and export as standard HAR format.

Features

  • Multiplatform, available on major operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, other Unices.
  • Fast and native implementation of web standards: DOM, CSS, JavaScript, Canvas, SVG. No emulation!
  • Pure headless (no X11) on Linux, ideal for continuous integration systems. Also runs on Amazon EC2, Heroku, Iron.io.
  • Easy to install: Download, unpack, and start having fun in just 5 minutes.
