Fail Proof Tests in Any Browser with Selenium

What happens when you have thousands of tests that run beautifully in Chrome, but half of them fail in Internet Explorer? Unfortunately, this scenario is all too common for developers, and remains a major sore point for teams tasked with getting software out the door that gives the user a great experience in any browser.

This talk will discuss how access to cloud-based Selenium Grids makes it easier than ever to run automated functional test suites in every imaginable operating system and browser combination. The result is less time and hassle adapting testing suites to each particular browser. Join Dr. Kevin Berg of Sauce Labs as he shares hands-on insight into ways you can optimize your tests for cross-browser functional testing.

The session will cover why cross browser testing is important, why some browsers behave differently than others, implicit vs. explicit waits, error handling, and using page objects to write more consistent tests.

Session Takeaways:

  • Why cross browser testing is important.
  • Why some browsers behave differently than others.
  • Distinguishing between visible vs. clickable elements.
  • Differences between implicit vs. explicit waits.
  • Error handling and using Page Objects to write more consistent tests.
