Behat tests works with IE, although you might find some failures which needs to be sorted. FYI: 32 bit version works better and faster as compared to 64 bit.
Thanks for the info. I was sent this spreadsheet in the Moodle dev chat which seems to suggest that IE/IEDriver was too problematic to run the tests reliably. Can you give me any more context about that?
Also, I'm aware that there's an early version of a driver for Edge, are there plans to test >=3.0 using that? (I'm not sure if it's complete enough to be any use as yet).
To give some context to my questions, we currently run all of our tests on Chrome, and sometimes Firefox. It would be nice to have the option to run them on MS browsers too, but the way our environments are set up, this would require some configuration changes so we'd like to know that it's worth the effort before we try!
IE driver is a bit of problem as it do crash often on a VM. So surely not suitable for running tests in CI (continuous integration).
We tried MS EDGE, but can't make it run any behat scenario. It crashes after invoking, so surely need to wait till MS fully supports it https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/platform/status/webdriver/details/
- 32 bit driver is more faster then it's counter part 64 bit.
- There are few known failures on IE.
- ATTO adds different style params when using IE
- Switch window fails
Hope this information helps.
