Headless Testing Primer
This white paper presents a primer on headless browser testing - what it is, how it works, and where it fits within a quality strategy that includes other types of testing (such as cross browser, front-end performance, and more). It is a must-read for any team that is considering shifting testing left, and provides insight into how you can get started with headless testing.
To achieve true continuous testing, quality checks must be implemented at various stages of the software development pipeline. With this in mind, it’s important to understand that different stages of the pipeline have different test requirements, and need resources that allow teams to continue delivering code quickly without creating bottlenecks. Headless browser testing has emerged as an effective way to implement early pipeline testing. It’s lightweight, fast, and able to scale with development as they incorporate more testing into their workflows.
