MICROSOFT EDGE TEST AUTOMATION: PAINFUL LIKE INTERNET EXPLORER, BUT NOT IN THE SAME WAY
By: Thomas Haver

Internet Explorer is widely considered to be the most difficult & temperamental browser to automate in the web automation space. The numerous built-in challenges has made controlling the browser difficult compared to the other popular web options. The release of Microsoft Edge with Windows 10 meant Internet Explorer would slowly decline in usage, but the new browser poses difficulties of its own. The initial limited support for the Edge DriverServer meant the capabilities of browser automation were lacking. Additionally, the userbase who converted over to Windows 10 took their favorite browser with them. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate the problems & solutions for test automation on Windows 10 with Edge, complete with a setup that allows automation developers to switch between Edge, Internet Explorer, and other popular browsers for the same test.

PARKING INFORMATION
Park in any lot adjacent to 7 Easton Oval (the Huntington building) and enter through the front door (center of the U shaped building). We’ll have colleagues available to bring guests upstairs to our training rooms.
