The HyJavaImages library uses /json/new to create Chrome pages on startup.

UPDATE March 9, 2023.
PLEASE NOTE:

From Chrome version 111 the Chrome DevTools Protocol has stopped supporting HTTP GET requests for /json/new.
Users with HyJavaImages library v1.5.3 and earlier will see an error when starting Chrome with the Chrome.start() method.

Improved javadoc.

HyJavaImages v1.5.1 - November 26, 2021

Change in formatting: Previously the library used the Chrome user-agent stylesheet which defaults to body { margin: 8px; }.
This would normally not be noticeable on 800 x 600 images but does impact smaller size images where some of the image may be cut-off.
This has now been overriden to body { margin: 0; }.
If required the previous body margin is available by using internal or external CSS.
For example: ImageGenerator.setCSSInternal("body { margin: 8px !important; }");
Now supports the .webp image format.
Ability to define the location where temporary html files will be created.

Now supports restarting the Chrome headless server after "n" completed requests. See the Chrome.setMaxChromeRequests() method.
Method ImageGenerator.setJavaScriptLibraryLocal() has been deprecated. You should now use method ImageGenerator.setJavaScriptLibraryAlternate().

Change in behaviour:
Previously the Chrome.stop() method performed a hard stop. Active requests were ignored.
This method now waits for active requests to complete before stopping the Chrome headless server.
The previous behaviour is still available by using the Chrome.stop(boolean forceStop) method.

Previously the Chrome.stop() method would close down a shared Chrome headless server even if the Chrome.connect() method had been called.
This would impact other users of the Chrome headless server.
The Chrome.stop() method will now not allow this. If you call the Chrome.connect() method you should use the Chrome.disconnect() method.
If this is your required behaviour (IE. close down a shared Chrome headless server) you should now use the new Chrome.disconnectWithStop() method.

Previously when starting Chrome, the library would include chromium binaries in the locations searched. The library no longer includes Chromium locations. We only test the library against Chrome. You can choose to specify a chromium binary with the setChromeBinaryPath() method.

Minor changes to the functionality that allows multiple charts in one image:
Method ImageGenerator.setChartOptions() has been renamed ImageGenerator.setAdditionalChartOptions().
New method ImageGenerator.setAdditionalChartDivAttributes(String... additionalChartDivAttributes) now handles any additional div attributes.
Method ImageGenerator.setChartDivAttributes(String chartDivAttributes) now expects only one div attributes parameter.

New class ChromeContext that implements methods to set cookies and permissions.
