SafariDriver is too fast

8 May

Of all the browsers I’ve worked with SafariDriver is too fast. Fast is good but too fast has some issues too.

Don’t know about Opera, but Chrome and/or Firefox is next in fast speed. I don’t test Chrome enough to say if faster than FF but think so, with IE being slowest.

With all the other browsers, FF/Chrome/IE, you can see the visual activity happen in most cases. But SafariDriver does it so fast, you don’t get to visually monitor & verify that what’s automated actually working well other than whether test passes or you get some exception from SafariDriver.

I’d prefer to be able to see the automated actions during a test run…

    Hi David,

    do you know, if there’s a project going on, that tests the speed of browser-driver’s with some standardized code? Would be interesting …

    Yours Michael

      Michael, I don’t know if any such project is occurring or not. Such a project would indeed be interesting.
