Microsoft ship a WebDriver implementation

Thu 23 Jul 2015

Microsoft, the people still claim to be evil (who are actually big proponents of the the The Open Web), have... (wait for it...) SHIPPED. AN. IMPLEMENTATION. OF. WEBDRIVER!

At GTAC in California in 2011, Blackberry ship a version for the browser on their devices. We have seen mobile implementation with iOS-Driver, Selendroid and Appium.

The Spec is on track to be put forward for Recommendation by the end of the year. All the dreams that we (the Selenium Development team (my BFFs)) had are slowly coming true. This ship might be slow moving but it's mostly because some companies haven't always seen the value.

so...

P.s. There is an open bug on the WebKit tracker for Safari support (and it is getting some internal push so I am hopeful!)
