Browserless Docs

We are continually updating the service for better performance, library usage, and availability. Most of these changes happen seamlessly, however we don’t automatically update your accounts Chrome version automatically. You can think of this like operating-system updates where restarts are required.

Updating Hosted Accounts

Browserless update UI

To update your Chrome instance(s), follow these instructions:

  1. Go to your account page.
  2. Scroll to the Chrome section
  3. Using the drop-selector, pick the version of Chrome you want to use.

If you hover of the version a tip will appear showing more details on that Chrome image.

Updating Self-Hosted Accounts

If you are using the docker intergration to launch on your own infrastructure, then simply pull the latest image and use it to relaunch. Alternatively, you can:

  1. Visit the docker hub page.
  2. Versions follow puppeteer version (0.110 and 0.12.0, for example).
  3. You can also inspect more about the image with docker inspect browserless/chrome as it contains more meta-data about the image.

Once you pull the image, simply stop the old container and start the new one:

  1. docker rm -f browserless.
  2. docker run --shm-size=1gb --cap-add SYS_ADMIN -p 3000:3000 --restart always -d --name browserless.
  3. Optional, but cleanup the workspace: docker system prune -a -f.
