Since I’m using Selenium (via STIQ) at my job these days, I’ve found a few tools that are priceless for web automation. The latest of these I’ve discovered is xpather. It is a firefox plugin that allows you to highlight any text on a page and see a (not ‘the’) xpath query to that element. Saves tons of counting.
It’s just what you need to find that silly, unmarked item in a HTML stew and get it’s contents. Along with firebug (plugin here), it’s a must have for HTML inspection.
Anyone have other tools they like?
Of course, another firefox plugin one can’t do with out is the Selenium IDE.
