Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Much like Cypress and TestCafe, Puppeteer is one of the web UI testing tools garnering praise from our teams. Puppeteer can have fine-grained control over headless browsers, obtain time-trace for performance diagnostics and more. Our teams have found Puppeteer to be stable as well as faster and more flexible than alternatives based on WebDriver.

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

In the previous Radar we mentioned Headless Chrome for front-end test. With the adoption of Chrome DevTools Protocol (CDP) by other browsers a new set of libraries is emerging for browser automation and testing. CDP allows for fine-grained control over the browser even in headless mode. New high-level libraries are being created using CDP for testing and automation. Puppeteer is one of these new libraries. It can drive headless Chrome through a single-page application, obtain time-trace for performance diagnostics and more. Our teams found it faster and also more flexible than alternatives based on WebDriver.
