How do I disable web security for the WebKit browser in Playwright?


Sure, you can disable web security for the WebKit browser in Playwright. Here's how you can do it:

First, launch a new instance of the WebKit browser using webkit.launch().

import { webkit } from 'playwright';

async function main() {
  const browser = await webkit.launch();

Next, create a new context using browser.newContext() and pass an array of command-line arguments as options. Include the --disable-web-security flag in these arguments.

async function main() {
  const context = await browser.newContext({
    // Disable web security
    args: ['--disable-web-security'],

Now, you can use this context to create new pages and perform actions.

async function main() {
  const page = await context.newPage();
  await page.goto('https://ray.run/');
  await browser.close();

Remember, disabling web security can have potential security implications. So, use it with caution. Always enable web security when running tests or accessing websites that require secure browsing.

For more details or updates, refer to the official Playwright documentation.
