    Does WEB UI Testing framework support functional tests running on a hidden mode?
    By hidden mode i mean , simulating the browser actions but not displaying them (and i do aware of load tests which are a sequence of http requests). and i do aware of the idea behind UI testing. from automation perspective i am looking for the fastest runtime solution which will still be simulating the true actions done by a user/browser.

    Hello Pablo,

    Thank you for the question.

    I think I understand your request. You are probably aware the browser execution slows down the tests a bit and this is expected.

    All our test automation products run in the browser. This means any test first needs to launch the browser then do the actions in there. The tests perform those actions and verifications against the DOM elements on the Web page (or the Visual Tree in Silverlight).

    A nice option you might be interested in though is reusing one and the same browser. This means a list of tests may launch the browser only once then reuse it for each test. For further info please look for the RecycleBrowser setting in the documentation.

    Please let us know if further questions arise.

    Sincerely yours,
