Using web browser extensions to better your web application testing

Hi, I am Holden. AKA: K33NTester. In this video, I will be sharing three useful browser extensions/add-ons that are compatible with Google Chrome and Firefox. The extensions mentioned in this video are TruePath, Bug Magnet, and CSS Viewer.


TruePath dynamically generates relative XPath on right-click on the web page and displays all the XPath as menu items. Truepath can generate XPath using text value and can create XPath in iFrame or Frames. It also shows the iFrame and iFrame URL so that the user can quickly identify that from which iFrame or Frame the XPath is generated. TruePath also supports the Page Object XPath format or @FindBy. TruePath can also be used with Selenium Page Object locater or Serenity Page Object locater. With DevTool supports, users can easily customize the generated XPath.

It groups the XPath based on:

  • Id, href and src
  • Class, name, title
  • Or Index.
