Support for Cypress testing on the Electron browser

Cypress offers automated testing across multiple browsers. Currently, Cypress supports Chrome-flavored browsers like Electron, Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based), Firefox, and WebKit -Safari’s browser engine.

The Electron browser is a Chromium version that comes with Electron. You need not install it separately, as it is built-in with Cypress.

In addition to Chrome, Firefox, and Edge, our LambdaTest-Cypress CLI supports Cypress testing on the Electron browser. Therefore, you can execute and analyze your Cypress test scripts on the Electron browser online.
