How to Close a Browser with Python?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To close a browser programmatically using Python, you can make use of a web automation library such as Selenium. Selenium allows you to automate interactions with web browsers, including opening and closing them.

Here’s an example of how you can close a browser using Selenium with Python:

from selenium import webdriver

# Create a new instance of the web driver (choose the appropriate browser driver)
driver = webdriver.Chrome()

# Perform operations in the browser...

# Close the browser

In this example, we use Selenium’s webdriver module to create a new instance of the web driver. In this case, we’re using the Chrome browser driver (webdriver.Chrome()), but you can choose a different browser driver based on your needs (e.g., Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc.).

After performing any necessary operations in the browser, you can close it by calling the quit() method on the driver instance. The quit() method closes the browser window and releases any associated system resources.

Remember to have the appropriate browser driver installed and in the system PATH for Selenium to work correctly. You can download the browser drivers from the official Selenium website or use a package manager like pip to install them.

Make sure you have the Selenium library installed before running the code. You can install it using pip:

pip install selenium

Keep in mind that automating browser interactions can be useful for specific tasks but should be used responsibly and in accordance with the terms of service of the websites you interact with.
