How to navigate links using Python Selenium

The first thing one’ll want to do with WebDriver is navigate to a link. The normal way to do this is by calling get method:
Syntax –




WebDriver will wait until the page has fully loaded (that is, the onload event has fired) before returning control to your test or script. It’s worth noting that if your page uses a lot of AJAX on load then WebDriver may not know when it has completely loaded. If you need to ensure such pages are fully loaded then you can use waits.

Project Example –
After you have installed Selenium, create a file called as –
Program –

# Python program to demonstrate

# import webdriver
from selenium import webdriver
# create webdriver object
driver = webdriver.Firefox()
# get
