Welcome to the 17th edition of Coding Jag brought to you by LambdaTest!
If you’ve ever hopped on the automation testing bandwagon, you know the inherent role Selenium plays in keeping those wheels well-oiled. Since its release in 2004, Selenium has made the lives of testers much more comfortable than before. Testing is no longer considered an arduous process (for the most part), thanks to Selenium and two of its quintessential components- Selenium WebDriver & Selenium Grid.
The latest version of Selenium Alpha was launched this year, and it has been the talk of the testing town ever since. Selenium 4 offers some of the more advanced features, including W3C compliance, a new CLI runner, a better UI, and better observability. The best part is that automation scripts developed using Selenium 2 and 3 will not be impacted. So switching from either of those versions to Selenium 4 should not be too much of a challenge. If you haven’t made the switch yet, Himanshu Sheth can help you figure out how to upgrade from Selenium 3 to Selenium 4.
Happy New Year!
