Sauce Connect Gets a Speed Boost & WebSocket Support


Sauce Connect was designed with security as priority one. But given this technology's critical position in your testing process we know that performance and utility are important, too. For that reason we have made two major improvements to Sauce Connect tunnels.

  1. Faster startup times. Enhancements to the underlying technology enable Sauce Connect tunnels to startup up to three times faster.

  2. WebSocket support. The new tunnels support use of the WebSocket protocol in tested applications.

  We are in the process of gradually migrating all Sauce Connect tunnels to the new architecture so you can expect to begin experiencing the benefits over the coming weeks.
