Running a headless browser in production is fraught with frustration and downtime. browserless solves these issues by providing a rich set of developer tools, hosting, and reliability.

November 16, 2020 Three years and trending on Github!

It's been 3 years since we started browserless, but as always small wins are some of the best wins! Today, we are trending at #5 on Github's Daily Typescript repositories, as seen here: https://github.com/trending/typescript?since=daily.

Thanks to all who've followed us so far on this journey, and here's to many more years to come!

September 30, 2019 500 paying users hit!

After two years of running the business we have now hit 500 paying users! This an incredible accomplishment, and we couldn't have done it without the support and help from this community.

If you're on IndieHackers, and wondering how to get started, we were in your same shoes not so long ago. Please reach out and we'd be more than happy to share our insights!

June 7, 2019 300 Customers!

Just a short 8 months ago, after nearly a year of being in production, we announced that we had 100 users.

Now, fast-forward about 8 months later, and we've tripled that number! Here's to fighting and growing for your users!

April 25, 2019 We just hit 3M sessions in a day!

We've hit 3M sessions ran in one day! This is a huge milestone for us, and places us as one of the largest providers for browser-based automation. Even with the likes of SauceLabs and Browserstack!

April 16, 2019 We've launched our new Live debugger!

How do you answer the question of "it works locally, but not in prod?" for headless workloads?

This is a question we've often asked ourselves, and the only answer is a better toolset. With that in mind, our latest docker release now includes a "live" debugger! You can now drop-in on active Puppeteer/REST API sessions and see what the browser is doing + have access to the entirety of Chrome's developer tools!

Our README has more information on how this all works, and it's now a part of our Dedicated plans, so go forth and conquer headless Chrome!

April 1, 2019 Usage-based accounts are live

We're happy to announce that our usage-based accounts are now live! Pay only $0.00008/second for running your headless browser work, and no ongoing costs or fees.

We're extremely excited about this release as we encountered many challenges, great and small, in getting this out to production. Expect more write-ups from us on how we went about them!
