My personal blog about webdrivers.
What Watirsays about webdrivers.
What Selenium says about webdrivers.
And last but not least, W3C about webdrivers.



If you run the test on one machine and i.c.w. Ruby/Watir, you can also use the webdrivers gem. Make sure the webdriver is in a folder that is in the PATH variable.


Selenium-grid: Keep in mind that the webdrivers gem is not going to work here.
Appium: Same for Appium.
Check My blogpost about webdrivers if you want more information about running these with a custom webdirver.
