Can PageProbe run in headless mode?
I’ve not had much experience with running headless, but my understanding from a long-running ticket in Chromium’s issue tracker is that Chrome doesn’t support extensions in headless mode, which would eliminate PageProbe. There’s a possible workaround suggested on this StackOverflow question involving launching Chrome on an in-memory virtual display, which would allow for extensions; however, the extension itself would likely prove a pain to install and configure.
How do you manage the time to investigate new tools while still functioning as a parent and an essential team member?
We did manage to sneak this one in at the end of Q&A, so it should be visible in the on-demand video In summary, much as you saw in the examples that I gave in my talk, I try to find occasions in my day-to-day life where experimenting with tooling might solve a problem or remove some inconvenience. This makes it easier to justify doing investigations in my spare time (although I’m one of the worst people in the world for sacrificing important things like sleep, to invent more free time!)
