Headless Selenium Testing with Chrome Headless

Since Chrome 60, there's an option to make Chrome run in headless mode. Headless mode means Chrome does not need to start up a User Interface (Window/GUI), it simply runs without any visualisation. This also means that the browser starts up way faster than it normally would and that it runs much faster too.


Even though running tests in a Headless browser is not the same like a user browsing your website on a normal browser, it might still make sense to use Headless Testing as a way to quickly verify certain things on your website (Smoke-test).

  • Logging of your tests has improved. You can now see detailed logs of your test, together with Sikuli/Appium logs straight from inside the test detail page in our member area.

New feature: 2 Factor Authorization

While we continue to provide the most secure and stable Selenium grid publicly available, we recently added Two Factor Authentication (2FA) as an option for all users.


Two Factor Authentication adds an extra layer of security while logging into your account on the TestingBot website. After entering the correct username and password, and if 2FA is enabled, TestingBot will send a unique code to your cellphone via SMS and will wait for you to input the correct Two Factor Authentication code you received. You will be logged in only when you input the correct code you received on your phone.
