Sauce Headless Announced
November 13, 2018

Sauce Lab announced Sauce Headless, a new offering that provides cloud-based headless browser testing on containers.

Designed with development teams in mind, Sauce Headless will give developers instant access to fast and reliable test results at a cost effective price point.

With Sauce Headless, developers will have access to a lightweight cloud-based infrastructure they need to run a high volume of tests early in the development cycle and receive instant feedback on the quality of their code.

“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. Combining this industry-first headless solution with our industry-leading cross browser and mobile app testing makes Sauce Labs the most comprehensive continuous testing cloud available.”

Sauce Headless offers headless Chrome and Firefox browsers on Linux in a container-based infrastructure to test web applications. The speed and affordability of Sauce Headless makes it possible for organizations to test on every commit and catch regressions earlier. This lightweight early testing combined with Sauce Labs full cross browser testing later in the pipeline provides a comprehensive approach that ensures bugs are caught early, and that applications are compatible across all relevant platforms. Just as with virtual machines, development teams don’t have the time and resources to build, troubleshoot, and manage a container-based testing grid on their own. Sauce Labs is first-to-market with a cloud-based headless testing grid that allows developers to achieve instant feedback and massive scale, without the pain of managing any internal infrastructure.

Sauce Headless will launch in public beta for enterprise customers in January 2019.
