comment WebDriver API: 'Failed to send keys because cannot focus element' — better workaround than using Firefox instead of Chrome?
In case anyone was looking, there is a pretty simple way to fire events with webdriver: "var evt = document.createEvent('MouseEvent'); evt.initMouseEvent('mousedown', true, true, window, 0, 0, 0, " + x + ", " + y + ", false, false, false, false, 0, null); arguments[0].dispatchEvent(evt); "

comment Performance tool for scripting HTTP requests dynamically
RequestJS is a pretty good library for testing web requests, but it does not have any of the out of the box functionality listed in the question about running massive amounts of requests concurrently and managing user load across multiple agents that you typically need for performance testing.

comment Calculating Average Load from Peak load and vice versa
Good luck, I'm not sure that such a thing exists, there are a lot of variables to take into consideration that could make drastic differences to the calculation.

comment Help finding child class with cssSelector syntax
It does not support selecting by innerText, but I try to avoid selecting by innerText as much as possible anyways, especially if I have a localized web site that I may want to test in multiple languages. Even without localization, innerText is much more likely to change than an ID on an element. Lastly, you can find a list of elements by CSS selector, and then iterate through them to match on text. Some frameworks such as Geb have built in support for this that is pretty simple.

comment What practices are used to avoid constantly testing the login screen in web driver tests?
It really depends on the authentication mechanism that your application is using, as well as the language which you are wanting to write it for. Most languages have http libraries available like HttpWebRequest in .net, or HTTPBuilder in Java. Essentially, you can use a tool like the network tab in the browser dev tools, or fiddler to capture the traffic going to your web server, and then you would have to create that same request(s) in your code using one of the above mentioned libraries.

comment selenium.ElementNotVisibleException: Element is not currently visible
I don't see the original input field in the html block you posted. Did you get the correct section of html? Did you try executing the CSS selector in the browser developer tools console? Does it return multiple elements?

comment Should I take interview of manual tester who has more experience than me
I would especially highlight the part about not being afraid. Don't let years of experience change your perception of the person you are interviewing. I have made many good hires of people with only a few years experience and have not been interested in people with 20+ years experience. Look for their ability to perform the job, not the number of years doing it.

Are you getting some, but not all links, or no links at all? Are you able to find other elements?

comment How can I test load for a chat app built on node.js and socket.io?
Have you looked at Jmeter or Gatling? Both free load testing tools with getting started documentation.

comment IE 11 gives Unable to find element with css selector or xpath or Xpath expression cannot be evaluated or does notresult in a WebElement
Are you using waits at all to ensure elements are visible on the page before interacting with them? Could this be a timing issue?
