Invoking a Chrome browser - using ChromeDriver

As ChromeDriver is developed is Collaboration with the Chromium team.

Implementation is slightly different, Thought i'll better have it blogged which may help any one

Here are steps i followed to override the Enable Protected Mode To All zones

1. Here's the detailed wiki of selenium for a bit of background http://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/ChromeDriver

2. Download a appropriate driver based on your Operating System http://code.google.com/p/chromedriver/downloads/list

There are many ways mentioned on the selenium website for invoking the ChromeDriver.exe,I am mentioning what worked for me

IWebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(@"C:\Selenium\");

driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("Pass your http request");

3. The above snippet is C#

4. On executing your tests

5. Just like in screen shot you'l see the chromedriver.exe being initialized

6. Then the browser launches

7. You will have to cleanUp at the end of your test by quitting the driver
