Functional testing with(through?) chrome

Not sure if this can be done using RSpec and something else but I’m
trying to test a website using Chrome specifically. The website seems
to intermittently hang up Chrome but not Safari and it passes functional
tests without a browser.
I want to run a test that loops through loading the site with chrome and
measure the load time or record the error I get on a load fail.

Hope this makes sense.

I believe Cucumber + Sahi should work for you. More info here:

Best,

I would recommend Capybara[1] with the Selenium driver configured to use
Chrome:

Capybara.register_driver :selenium do |app|
Capybara::Selenium::Driver.new(app, :browser => :chrome)
end
