goto(url[, options])

Navigates to the specified URL and returns the main resource response.

Navigating to about:blank or navigation to the same URL with a different hash, will succeed and return null.

urlstring''URL to navigate page to. The url should include scheme, e.g. https://.
options.refererstring''Referer header value.
options.timeoutnumber30000Maximum operation time in milliseconds. Pass 0 to disable the timeout. The default value can be changed via the browserContext.setDefaultNavigationTimeout(timeout), browserContext.setDefaultTimeout(timeout), page.setDefaultNavigationTimeout(timeout) or page.setDefaultTimeout(timeout) methods. Setting the value to 0 will disable the timeout.
options.waitUntilstringloadWhen to consider operation to have succeeded. See Events for more details.



networkidle is DISCOURAGED. Don’t use this method for testing especially with chatty websites where the event may never fire, rely on web assertions to assess readiness instead.

Events can be either:

  • 'domcontentloaded' - consider operation to be finished when the DOMContentLoaded event is fired.
  • 'load' - consider operation to be finished when the load event is fired.
  • 'networkidle' - Consider operation to be finished when there are no network connections for at least 500 ms.


<Promise<Response | null>The Response> instance associated with the page. Else, it returns null.
