Familly Ties - Series Review

My hunger for Comic Sitcoms bumped me on Family Ties. It has total of 7 seasons and was aired between 1982 to 1989. I am very impressed with sound track of series, filled with eternal love.
More inspiring characters for me in the series is been Meredith Baxter-Birney as Elyse Keaton who plays role of responsible mother of three (and later four) and working women. Though she rarely loses her temper, but when she does then Michael Gross as Steven Keaton is with her to console. They two are the ideal couple for many in the series.
Then there is Justine Bateman as Mallory Keaton who is funny in her way of not knowing any thing about money but being hard on shopping. 
Michael J. Fox as Alex P. Keaton is most intellectual person in the series, though he is smug about his abilities especially when none of his sister shows any interest in economics.
Tina Yothers as Jennifer Keaton is one darling from series and reminds me of Vicky from Small Wonder. She is absolutely skilled at letting Alex know about his intelligence being of no value for her (some thing which Mallory could never do despite being elder to Alex)
There have been short appearances of Marc Price as Irwin "Skippy" Handelman in some episodes. He plays a dumb head who keeps drolling over Mallory, and Mallory never gives him any chance to come near her barring one episode when both of them were caught in basement.
And there is new entry in series Brian Bonsall as Andrew Keaton, he is not spoken much in series so far and I can only say that he a cute kid.
I am on 5th season of series and enjoying watching it. My rating for this series in 7/10 and two thumbs up for those who want a comic sitcom along with family values it showers....

Using chrome console to test xPath and css selectors

Since the advent of selenium there have been many plugin to test xPath / css selectors but you don’t need any of them if you have chrome browser. Using Chrome console you can test both xPath and css selectors. Launch website to be tested in chrome browser and hit F-12 and you would see chrome console opened in lower pane of application - Hit escape key and console would open another pane to write element locators - And now you can start writing xPath or css selectors in chrome console and test them - The syntax for writing css id - $$(“ ”) And hit the enter key. If your expression is right then html snippet of the application element corresponding to the css selector would be displayed - If you mouse over the html snippet in chrome console then it would highlight the corresponding element in application - If you want to clean console of previously written element selectors then just hit ctrl+L keys and chrome console would be empty again.

Verify email confirmation using Selenium

Email confirmation seems to be integral part of any registration process. I came across an application which lets you provide your email address. You can follow the sign up link in you mail and then complete the registration process. Lets consider we provide GMail address for it. Now if were to use only Selenium then we would have to follow following steps - Launch GMail using Selenium; Some how search for new mail in the list of available mails; Some how click on it; Parse the mail message; Get the registration link; Follow up with registration process What do you think of an approach in which you can

Return only first or last element from webelements collection

We often come across situation when there are multiple elements on a page and we probably like to exercise only a few of them using selenium webdriver. May be just first and last element. For example on a search result page we may like to click on only first and last link and not all. This is when Iterables API comes handy. (By the way I am assuming that you have already completed watching selenium training videos :)). Once we have collection of web element then we can use Iterables to get only first or last element as following - Consider that we fetch collection of element as - List< WebElement > webElements = getDriver().findElements(By. id ( "htmlID" ));   Now we can get the first web element from this collection as -  WebElement firstElement = Iterables. getFirst (webElements,  getDriver().findElement(By. id ( "defaultElement" )));   Herein second argument -   (getDriver().findElement(By. id ( "defaultElement" )))    in the me
