Why to use headless browsers?

0 votes
We implemented Jenkins CI with actual browsers. As soon as developers checks in new code, it triggers job and our selenium code does smoke testing. It works as a seperate process and it even gives us screenshot and complete result. I am not sure why headless browsers are in place and what's the pros of using the same?

I've heard from many people that HL browsers are faster. As page is not required to load. But I do not see much difference.

As per my understanding, its used as workaround on computers with no real display.
