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?

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?

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?

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
Sorry, to be more clear, you are right when it comes to XPath selectors. If you use the find elements by class name function or a CSS selector, it would find any match, not match on the entire string.

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
This is language agnostic. This is how a browser treats a CSS selector, it always works the same way, regardless of which language you are using for Selenium.

comment Selenium find all elements without a class
GKS1 is absolutely right, you have multiple classes separated by spaces. Identifying an element by a class name will find all elements that match, even if they also have additional classes.

comment integration of Selenium Java testNG framework with .net framework
I think you're going to need to provide more details about what you want to do. The way your question stands, it is very much open to interpretation. What exactly do you want to integrate? What are the specific scenarios you want to enable? Why do you need this?

comment How to test Image carousel
Are you looking for ideas on what to test, or you already know what you want to test and need to know how to automate it? If you know specifically what to test, give us the steps and we can help identify how to automate it.

comment Licensing restrictions of formal methods (code proof) tools and contractors
What sort of development environment and programming language are you looking for? Solutions vary depending on which. Typically you would not find contractors that do that, you would either have to license the software yourself, or use free software that you could configure in house, or hire a contractor/consultant to set up for you.
