Sauce Labs Unveils New Headless Testing Solution
Cloud testing specialist Sauce Labs has introduced a new product, Sauce Headless, which offers cloud-based headless browser testing on containers. Headless testing is a way of running browser UI tests without the head, i.e. without the browser UI, or a GUI of any sort.
The new offer is aimed at developers working within an agile environment, allowing them to run a high volume of tests early in the development cycle and receive instant feedback on the quality of their code, as part of an efficient continuous testing practice.
“The testing landscape has changed dramatically in the last year, thanks in large part to the movement to shift testing to earlier in the development pipeline,” said Lubos Parobek, VP of Product at Sauce Labs. “Catching bugs earlier reduces costs, improves quality and increases developer productivity. Sauce Headless is an exciting new offering that will allow developers to test on every commit.”
Sauce Headless offers headless Chrome and Firefox browsers on Linux in a container-based infrastructure to test web applications.
