Bot detection is important - we don’t want bots to trigger an advertising impression, fake user interactions, or access performance heavy features. When a new method of detection is discovered, some bots stop working; This incentivizes the survivors to evolve, changing themselves just a little bit to seem more and more like a real user, becoming harder and harder to detect. All of a sudden the issue is so big Twitter and Meta(Facebook) struggle to explain to congress why there’s bots on their platforms. This is one reason why Puppeteer Extra Stealth(PES) is so interesting - Google’s Puppeteer browser is the state of the art when it comes to browser automation, and PES is a headless browser that outsmarts most bot detection solutions. In this talk Adam will overview just how stealthy is PES, and despite that what unique methods have been used to identify it anyway.
