Dumb-init vs Selenium: What are the differences?

What is Dumb-init? A minimal init system for Linux containers, by Yelp. dumb-init runs as PID 1, acting like a simple init system. It launches a single process and then proxies all received signals to a session rooted at that child process. Since your actual process is no longer PID 1, when it receives signals from dumb-init, the default signal handlers will be applied, and your process will behave as you would expect. If your process dies, dumb-init will also die, taking care to clean up any other processes that might still remain.

What is Selenium? Web Browser Automation. 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.

Dumb-init belongs to "Container Tools" category of the tech stack, while Selenium can be primarily classified under "Browser Testing".

Dumb-init and Selenium are both open source tools. Selenium with 14.9K GitHub stars and 4.97K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Dumb-init with 3.84K GitHub stars and 212 GitHub forks.
