Launch Playwright in the Cloud

Playwright is the most promising browser automation framework developed by Microsoft. It focusses on supporting browser engines instead of end user browser, which enables user to test their web app compatibility against Chromium (Chrome), Firefox and WebKit (Safari). We provide solutions for Linux as well as Windows. This image comes with detailed documentation, sample code snippets and email support included. Contact us on for all kind of infrastructure and coding issues.
