For new features and future enhancements please go through release
notes at http://code.google.com/p/firewatir/wiki/ReleaseNotes .

Main features of this release are:

  1. Main concern was speed. It has been improved significantly and now
    it’s faster than Watir on IE.

  2. You don’t have to start the Firefox browser manually its started
    uisng a script. Currently it works only on windows.

  3. Its platform independent as there is no platform specific component.
    It has been tested on Windows.Though not tested on Linux and Mac.

  4. Tested on Firefox version 1.5, 1.5.0.4, 1.5.0.7 , 2.0 and 2.0.0.1 on
    Windows.

  5. Can run script on a remote machine.

the installation guide document to use it.

Any suggestions, comments and experiences (with FireWatir) are highly
appreciated.

Happy Testing using FireWatir!!

Hi…I have few questions on this.

  1. The scripts which are written using FireWatir can be run on IE or
    not?
    Can we have something browser independent script?Or scripts for both the
    browsers
    are separate?

2.Can run a script on remote machine and the script is visible on the
remote
site or not?
Or only output of the script is visible on remote machine?

I’d like testing it under Mac OS X the latest, any advice on how to
uninstall it in case of probs ?

What kind of install would u suggest in such a case.

I’d prefer having FireWatir installed in a user directory for
experiment, and iff everything OK, install it for all users.

Hi,

FireWatir installer is a gem so you can use ruby gems to
install/uninstall it. I am not having much experience with MAC so can’t
advise you a solution. Also you need to download the XPI for MAC from
http://people.mozilla .com/~davel/jssh/

This was exactly my problem a few months ago when I wanted to give
FireWatir a shot (I am on Linux so IEWatir is not an option). I did not
get any help when I wrote here so I have dumped the whole stuff that
time - I wonder if this has been improved since then? I would really
like to take FireWatir for a test drive, but not without any tutorials
whatsoever… (I am not claiming that there are no tutorials, maybe just
I did not found them).

TIA,
Peter

Hi Peter,

You can visit http://code.google.com/p/firewatir and read the wiki
pages for help. I haven’t tried the code on Linux yet but it should
work. The installations instructions remains the same. Shortly, I am
going to test it on Linux and will write in case there are problems
specific to the platform.

Let me know if you have some queries/issues/suggestions.

Regards,
Angrez

Hi,

I was able to install the gem on osx even though it’s name has win32
in it.

Could you please send me the issues/problems etc that you faced while
installing it on Mac OS X. Is it working fine?
We haven’t tested it yet so you information would be helpful to us.

Hi,

We haven’t tested FireWatir on MAC machine so haven’t released any gem
for Mac machine. Though there would not be any difference in the gem
except for the name which indicates that it is for MAC. Once it is
tested we can release that to.

Hi, I think the davel page only has Jssh for Linux for FF 1.5, etc. It
will not load under 2.0 versions. Does anyone know if this has been
updated?

Thanks

Hi Ed,

The xpis are not updated for Firefox 2.0 yet. I’ll be working on it
once I am done with testing of FireWatir with Firefox version 1.5.x on
Linux.
