  • the main resource failed to load.

Remarks

Navigation to about:blank or navigation to the same URL with a different hash will succeed and return null.

warning

Headless shell mode doesn't support navigation to a PDF document. See the upstream issue.

In headless shell, this method will not throw an error when any valid HTTP status code is returned by the remote server, including 404 "Not Found" and 500 "Internal Server Error". The status code for such responses can be retrieved by calling HTTPResponse.status().
