comment Websocket Load Testing
At the time of my answer, it was good, but the answer from Dmitri is now a much simpler route to take.

comment Load Testing, Selenium Vs Jmeter Vs other tools
Much cheaper. HP LoadRunner can cost millions of dollars for large organizations. Visual Studio Load Testing now comes with a Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 license (used to be Visual Studio Ultimate). It looks like since I used it they have also added the ability to run your tests in the cloud relatively cheaply: visualstudio.com/en-us/get-started/test/load-test-your-app-vs. Or, you can use your own hardware at no additional cost. The initial cost of Enterprise looks to be $6,000 with a yearly license renewal of $2,169.

comment Do you verify presence of text in your automated tests?
Sorry, that is a .net specific reference. resx files are resource files commonly used to hold string translations for .net applications. If you are working with a non .net application, you can replace resx with "resource file"

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?
