Navigating to a Specific URL with WebdriverIO (JavaScript)

WebdriverIO is a powerful tool for automating web applications and testing, allowing developers to write scripts that can interact with web pages as users would. One common task in web automation and testing is navigating to a specific URL. In this article, we will explore how to navigate to a specific URL using WebdriverIO in JavaScript.

Using the .url() Method to Navigate

The most straightforward way to navigate to a specific URL with WebdriverIO is by using the .url() method available to the browser object. This method takes a single argument: the URL to navigate to. When the method is called, WebdriverIO will instruct the browser to navigate to the specified URL, just as if a user had manually entered the URL in the browser's address bar.

await browser.url("")

In this code snippet, we use the .url() method to navigate to the Wikipedia Language Selection Page.
