Just posted in my blog about "[Beginner] Long live PhantomJS, let's use Chrome Headless now"
If you do Feature Specs, the act of loading up a real app server and then a real headless browser to do real user feature testing, then you know Capybara and one of its most well-known drivers, Poltergeist . Poltergeist wraps up PhantomJS, which is a well known WebKit-based headless browser. But WebKit is known for being very complicated to deal with. So I can only imagine the nightmare to maintain PhantomJS, which is akin to main a full-blown web browser like Chrome or Safari. So it's no wonder that when the Chrome team announced the availability of the Chrome Driver , then the maintainer of PhantomJS decided to step down . If you know the contributors of PhantomJS, say thank you, as it helped as build more solid user features.
