New ChromeDriver

Filed under: Releases — shs96c @ 2:02 pm GMT+0000

The ChromeDriver is composed of two major pieces. There are the client APIs, which you use in your tests, and there’s a server part, which the client APIs know how to start and run and which takes the form of an executable called “chromedriver”. The server piece is maintained by the Chromium team, and they’ve just released a new version, with support for Chrome 14 and with bug fixes. If you’re using Selenium 2.0rc3 and you’re also using the ChromeDriver, head over to the Chromium project’s download page for the latest and greatest!


  1. I am still unsure just how this is to be used, where it is to be placed, etc.

    Using the WebDriver to start a test session with Chrome I get this error on my console after doing: test.webDriver.close();
    .\test\automation\ error: Value of: browser_proxy.get()
    Actual: false
    Expected: true

    I do not get such an error message using either iexplore or firefox, only for chrome.
