Puppeteer is a Node.js library that provides a high-level API for controlling headless Chrome or Chromium browsers. It allows you to automate user interactions such as clicking buttons, filling out forms, and making screenshots of web pages.

Compared to other browser automation frameworks, Puppeteer is powerful and easy to use. It provides a lot of features out of the box, such as intercepting network requests, emulating mobile devices, and generating PDFs. Puppeteer is also integrated with many other projects and tools, making it a popular choice for testing and web scraping. The library has excellent documentation and community support, making it easy to get started and learn the available features.
