comment What Are Some Unobvious Differences Between Testing a Web Application and a Desktop Application?
+1 for mentioning www.w3,org, most people seem to ignore it and don't bother to validate thier HTML which IMHO is the first smoke test you should ever perform.

comment How to configure selenium Web driver into Eclipse
This is a meaningless question, you don't integrate code into a IDE, you write code with an IDE.

comment How to determine whether a WebElement is a child of another WebElement?
WebElement's do not keep thier locator information once created and have no concept of parent's or children (This is why you occasionaly get StaleElementException's when navigating back and forth). You would have to extend the WebElement class to add in a reference to a parent element to acheive this.

comment Do Academic Researchers in Automated Software Testing Believe All Testing Can Be 100% Automated?
The whole point of a CAPTCHA is to prevent automation, I fail to see how it's a bad example...

My point is that by default a CAPTCHA will kill automated testing. Yes you can work around the problems it presents by being clever and doing one of the options suggested above, but I'll guarantee I can kill your 100% automated dream with a CAPTCHA if I don't give you a way to bypass it.

To automate the testing of a CAPTCHA you need to do one of the following: 1 - Turn it off; 2 - Fix the response to a static answer to enable you to enter it correctly; 3 - Supply the answer to the CAPTCHA to your test (e.g. hidden div with the correct answer). If you managed to automate by reading the picture the CAPTCHA is not fit for purpose and should have failed your testing.

comment QC 10: Shortcut keys for blocking a single step/all the steps?
Unless you can access the QC source you won't be able to add hotkeys, the examples I gave above are to show you what they look like to aid you in finding hotkeys that are already in the HTML...

comment Can the base-url be changed in the same browser session using Selenium RC?
Would be good to know what version of seleinum you are using (I'm specifically looking for a version number, Selenium RC is one of the Selenium API's that is available in Selenium 1 and Selenium 2)

comment How to click a link / button implemented as a div or span element with WebDriver
I know that things like this can be done, but I would argue that they shouldn't be done and by using workarounds in our automation to get round this badly written HTML we are just adding to the problem. Say no to bad HTML!

comment How to click a link / button implemented as a div or span element with WebDriver
Personally I would raise a div that is implemented as a button as a defect. HTML is supposed to be sematically correct, by subverting the functionality of elements this is no longer true and it will affect people interacting with your site. How will a screen reader know a div is really a button? How will people who have customised css for accessibility purposes know that the div's are supposed to be buttons? How will somebody with JS turned off interact with the site?
