Launch web driver without instaling it?



  • I was trying to launch a PhantomJS browser and it works on Azure VM. (I just point the PhantomJS.exe and it works)

    Then I try to launch a google web-driver and its asking me to locate the google installed location. (I dont install google chrome browser).

    So is there any other web drivers like PhantomJS which I dont need to install in order to launch it?



  • Yes, HTMLUnit and Rhino+Env.JS. But just like Phantom.JS I do not think they are actively developed. Suggested is to install Firefox or Chrome and use their headless mode.

    You could also try https://www.cypress.io/ which ships with Chromium and Electron.
