I don't mean to spell doom as I understand that Poltergeist will still work with existing versions of PhantomJS but that makes me curious if there are any ongoing efforts to target Headless Chromium (with this gem or another).

Thanks so much for all your hard work regardless.

It doesn't surprise me. With the number of people repeatedly posting issues (and demanding fixes with no contribution) in the PhantomJS repo, that were obviously issues with Webkit, trying to develop/maintain PhantomJS was probably a nightmare. There has been no work done in Poltergeist with regards to Headless Chrome, however once it is released it should be usable through selenium.

@olivierlacan Thanks for the link. fwiw, it links to https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/lkgr/headless/README.md which looks particularly useful

FYI - Capybara is being tested with headless chrome currently -- there are a couple of issues at the moment - teamcapybara/capybara#1860
