How does Headless Testing helps in Software Testing?

Headless Browser is a browser with no Graphical User Interface (GUI). User will not see any application visuals everything runs in background. Headless browsers are faster than real browsers because they bypass the time taken by real browser to load Objects, JavaScript and to render HTML. So if performance is critical agenda, one should go for headless browser.

Finally, we will be guaranteed with light weight, less resource and tests scripts automation tests that runs quicker. Headless testing helps in identification of critical defects in early stages and helps us to deliver the software with  little or minimal bugs.
