CasperJS vs Serverless Chrome: What are the differences?

Developers describe CasperJS as "Navigation scripting & testing for PhantomJS and SlimerJS". CasperJS is a browser navigation scripting & testing utility written in Javascript for PhantomJS or SlimerJS. On the other hand, Serverless Chrome is detailed as "Headless Chrome on AWS Lambda". The aim of this project is to provide the scaffolding for using Headless Chrome during a serverless function invocation. Serverless Chrome takes care of building and bundling the Chrome binaries and making sure Chrome is running when your serverless function executes. In addition, this project also provides a few "example" handlers for common patterns (e.g. taking a screenshot of a page, printing to PDF, some scraping, etc.).

CasperJS and Serverless Chrome can be primarily classified as "Headless Browsers" tools.

CasperJS and Serverless Chrome are both open source tools. It seems that CasperJS with 7.3K GitHub stars and 1.06K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Serverless Chrome with 1.95K GitHub stars and 192 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to CasperJS and Serverless Chrome?
    PhantomJS
    PhantomJS is a headless WebKit scriptable with JavaScript. It is used by hundreds of developers and dozens of organizations for web-related development workflow.
    Selenium
    Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
    Puppeteer
    Puppeteer is a Node library which provides a high-level API to control headless Chrome over the DevTools Protocol. It can also be configured to use full (non-headless) Chrome.
    Cypress
    Cypress is a front end automated testing application created for the modern web. Cypress is built on a new architecture and runs in the same run-loop as the application being tested. As a result Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Cypress works on any front-end framework or website.
    SlimerJS
    It allows you to manipulate a web page with an external Javascript script: opening a webpage, clicking on links, modifying the content... It is useful to do functional tests, page automation, network monitoring, screen capture etc.
