When running Selenium WebDriver scripts against the latest version of Chrome (57) it shows a save password prompt that hasn’t appeared previously whilst using Chromedriver, as far as I know.
Chromedriver/Chrome is pretty great at executing WebDriverJs scripts without taking away your focus (so you can execute them in the background whilst doing other things), the one exception I found was selecting items in a select list. I found it would do this:
It’s a long story (for another time) but I recently had to start using the Adblock Plus Chrome extension whilst running our automated e2e tests.
In upgrading to Selenium 3 we realized that the test hooks that WebdriverJs provides into Mocha are no longer compatible.
Yes, I know that Selenium 3 has been out for a while, but I’ve finally got around at looking at updating our end-to-end tests to use it. Newer versions of Firefox require Geckodriver which require Selenium 3.3+ so it’s a forced upgrade of sorts.

This is the last post in a multi-part series on computer security essentials. I am not a computer security expert but there’s some basic computer security essentials that a surprising number of people don’t understand. The aim of this series is to raise awareness of these. I will be covering password vaults, two factor authentication, devices and local encryption.
I’ve covered passwords, password managers, multi-factor authentication and VPNs so far in this series of posts. This final post aims to wrap things up with a few other areas where you can aim for good personal security practices.
