Didn't know about the company Selenium
I can see how the airline industry would be affected negatively by bot software that scans for prices. The same case for other sectors that have significant price option offers like hotels and cruises. The 55% bots showing up in Google Chrome makes a sense given the majority of users use this for their web browser. Well, like all problems come the opportunity for individuals to tackle and execute. And quite interesting to note that majority of the bot traffic is coming from the US and that a good portion of the truck is legal. Thank you for sharing what Selenium is and how it functions to help with testing websites for vulnerabilities. I was completely unaware of this company. <a href="https://www.mesa-carpenter.com"></a>
