WebDriver Navigational Commands:

  1. forward(): takes us to the next page as per the browser history
  2. back(): takes us to the previous page as per the browser history

Procedure:

  1. Importing the modules
  2. Creating an instance of Chrome.
  3. Go to the first URL i.e. www.geeksforgeeks,com
  4. Display the title of the page.
  5. Go to the second URL i.e. www.youtube,com
  6. Display the title of the page.
  7. Go to the previous page and display the title.

driver = webdriver.Chrome()
  
# taking first url
# getting title
print(driver.title)
  
# taking 2nd url
# getting the title
print(driver.title)
  
# given time open url
time.sleep(2)
  
# WebDriver Navigational Commands backward
driver.back()
# given time open url
time.sleep(2)
# if back then given previous title
print(driver.title)
  
# WebDriver Navigational Commands backward
driver.forward()
# given time open url
time.sleep(2)
# if goto forward then given next title
print(driver.title)
  
driver.close()
