css selectors in place of xpath for selenium locators

>yeah so in all these year, i have always resolved to using xpath whenever i am creating selenium scripts and i need to do stuff with element that have no id. well as you would probably know, xpath executes so slow on IE.

For intance i have a test suite that would run in 1hr 30mins on firefox/ safari but the same test suites would take over 4hrs to run to completion on IE.

So with the help of a colleagues, i have been using css selectors from last week and i can say this has drastically improved the speed of our test and you would notice too much difference between IE and FF/Safari anymore.

It takes some time to get used to but these are some link that might be useful to get start with ….

Enjoy …..
