Puppeteer is a Node.js library that provides a high-level API for controlling headless Chrome or Chromium browsers. It allows developers to automate tasks such as web scraping, testing, and generating screenshots of web pages. Puppeteer offers a rich set of features, including the ability to interact with web pages, simulate user actions, and capture network traffic.

Compared to alternatives like Selenium, Puppeteer is known for its ease of use, speed, and reliability. It leverages the latest features of the Chrome DevTools Protocol, making it a powerful tool for web automation tasks.
