chromebot is an IRC bot parallel to ArchiveBot that uses Google Chrome and thus is able to archive JavaScript-heavy websites. Both, software and bot, are maintained by User:PurpleSymphony. WARCs are uploaded daily to the chromebot collection on

By default the bot only grabs a single URL. However it supports recursion, which is rather slow, since every single page needs to be loaded and rendered by a browser. A dashboard is available for watching the progress of such jobs.
