Description

Recently we introduced so end-to-end browser tests, which is very good. Only problem is that the driver it uses is firefox, which causes a few problems:
  1. latest version of firefox just doesn't work with Capybara. nobody knows why.
  2. It pops a firefox window and interrupts work
  3. It's slow and very memory consuming.

We should use a headless browser instead, be it webkit or anything else.
