PhantomJS web driver stays in memory

0 votes

I am instantiating PhantomJSDriver in C# using the following code:

Driver = new PhantomJSDriver();

And I am cleaning it up with the below code:

Driver.Dispose();
Driver = null;

I want to understand that "Should this process exit or stay in memory?"

 If it is supposed to stay in memory, can I kill it programmatically?

Driver.Dispose(); shouldn't be used to clean up the WebDriver instance. 

We must be using Driver.Quit(); for proper cleanup. 

Driver.Close(); is used to close the current page or the browser.

Driver.Quit(); is used to close all the tabs/windows.

Thus, Driver.Quit() method is the only way to terminate the session.
