About the WebDriver tool

WebDriver enables developers to create automated tests that simulate users interacting with webpages and then report back results in Internet Explorer 11. WebDriver can also manage testing across multiple windows, tabs, and webpages in a single session.

Download the WebDriver tool

WebDriver implements many of the high priority features from the W3C spec to let developers open a session, automate basic functionality against the pages, and then return the results of the tests. WebDriver differs from JavaScript unit tests because WebDriver has access to functionality and information that JavaScript running does not in the browser. WebDriver can also more accurately simulate user events or OS-level events.

To download the WebDriver capabilities, go to the following Microsoft website:

IE Web Driver Tool for Internet Explorer 11The downloaded version of WebDriver is incompatible with the WebDriver version that is introduced in the Internet Explorer Developer Channel version.
