Runs Google Chrome in headless mode
$ google-chrome --headless
try on your machine

The command "google-chrome --headless" launches the Google Chrome browser in headless mode.

Headless mode is a way of running the browser without a visible user interface. It is typically used for automated tasks, such as web scraping, running tests, or generating screenshots or PDFs.

When the command is executed, Google Chrome starts in the background and performs tasks without displaying any graphical interface. The browser is still fully functional, allowing users to navigate websites, interact with elements on the page, execute JavaScript, and perform other browser-related actions programmatically.

Headless mode provides a more lightweight and efficient way to use the browser for automation purposes since it eliminates the need for GUI rendering and reduces resource consumption.
