The xk6-browser APIs aim for rough compatibility with the Playwright API for NodeJS.

Note that because k6 does not run in NodeJS, xk6-browser APIs will slightly differ from their Playwright counterparts.


The table below lists the importable properties from the top level module ('k6/x/browser').

chromiumA BrowserType to launch tests in a Chromium-based browser.
devicesReturns predefined emulation settings for many end-user devices that can be used to simulate browser behavior on a mobile device. See the devices example below.
versionReturns the version number of xk6-browser.

Devices Example

To emulate the browser behaviour on a mobile device and approximately measure the browser performance, you can import devices from k6/x/browser.

1import { chromium, devices } from 'k6/x/browser';
3export default function () {
4 const browser = chromium.launch({ headless: false });
5 const iphoneX = devices['iPhone X'];
6 const context = browser.newContext(iphoneX);
7 const page = context.newPage();
9 page
10 .goto('', {
11 waitUntil: 'networkidle',
12 })
13 .finally(() => {
14 page.close();
15 browser.close();
16 });
