WebDriver BiDi is an extension of the WebDriver specification that offers a bidirectional communication between a webdriver compatible client and a remote end like Firefox. That means that beside sending commands to the browser and receiving responses, it will be also possible to register for certain events (e.g page load, network interception).

Product Backlog Status
WebDriver BiDi Milestone 9 - Not started
Goal: Milestone 9 maintains its focus on aligning and integrating essential functionalities from Puppeteer and Selenium. Although we managed to implement most of these high-priority features in Milestone 8, some pending APIs still need to be integrated before Puppeteer can formally announce WebDriver BiDi support for Firefox. In our dedication to staying synchronized with Selenium, we're also addressing their top priorities. As a result, this milestone is dedicated to empowering clients to introduce new features and products to their users through WebDriver BiDi.
Details: Milestone 9 status
WebDriver BiDi Milestone 8 - In Development
Goal: Milestone 8 is centered around matching and integrating crucial features from Puppeteer and Selenium. This milestone is all about enabling those clients to ship features and products using WebDriver BiDi to their users. By doing so, we hope to encourage a continuous flow of valuable user feedback and collect success narratives. This feedback is crucial for the ongoing improvement and evolution of the WebDriver BiDi project, enabling us to better align with the needs and expectations of our user base.
