  Comment: selenium-rc can help (Score 1) on 2009.06.10 10:32

Selenium server itself supports "multiWindow" mode, which means that when the server is started up it also kicks firefox off at that time. It will then open a new window as a child and run your tests in there.

Other ways to speed the process up is to create your own dump of a firefox profile (selenium creates one for you, but does it every time). This will also reduce the time required to start selenium up.

I had previously sent a patch, but it looks like it got dropped. WWW::Selenium creates a brand new UserAgent object per selenium command, you can change that and get a speed boost, also enabling pipelining and keepalive help give a bit of a boost.

I believe that I have co-maint on WWW::Selenium, so if I get a chance I'll make some of those changes, but I have some more urgent Test::Builder stuff to work out for adding subtests or the like to Test::FITesque.

Test::A8N may also be worth your time to have a look at since it's been used heavily over time to do Selenium testing.

Hi all

I recently took over as the leader of the perl mongers group in Vancouver, BC. We had been a little on and off for a while and we've decided to always have a monthly meeting based on the advice of folks at PDX.pm. Thanks!

Except that all of those places are in the single travel zone, so it'd only be 1 stamp needed.
