Selenium Css Selector

Tips for Creating and Converting Selenium Css Selectors

Do you want to learn how to use Selenium Css selectors, or move your XPATH locators? Cascading style sheets (Css) is a coding system designed to describe a document's presentation. When coding, Css selectors match tags and attributes to apply the appropriate HTML style element. Css, as the native approach for all browsers, has the speed advantage over XPATH, especially in IE, where it's much faster. At Sauce Labs, we can help you transition from XPATH to Css, to get the most from your Selenium testing.
