    It would be fantastic if people who post announcements for a new release of X could also post a comment explaining what X is. I’ve read the release announcement and I still don’t actually know. I could go and dig into the rest of the site but a one-paragraph overview from the submitter would tell me if this is worth the effort.

      From the About section at the top of the page:

      Selenium is a suite of tools for automating web browsers.

      We’ve introduced “relative locators”. These allow you to specify where on the page an element can be found using language that people use too; things like “above that element”, or “to the right of this other element”. This will hopefully provide you all with a tool to fight against incredibly complex locators, making your tests read a little more clearly, and being more resilient to changes in the page’s DOM

      This sounds pretty neat, IMO selectors are one of the worst parts of browser automation
