Hello!

I am experiencing a file upload error with ChromeDriver (using Chrome
12) that I am not experiencing with Firefox
(backtrace: https://gist.github.com/1096202).

This led me to find the following bug report and patch on the subject:
http://code.google.com/p/selenium/issues/detail?id=1725&q=chrome%20file%20upload
I understand this correctly, the patch is applicable not only to
chromedriver but also to Chrome 14.

Now, there is a known bug in chromedriver with Chrome 14 that causes
text assertions to fail (
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6591106/watir-webdriver-text-includeexpected-text-doesnt-work-in-chrome-browser
). So, is it true that if your tests include text assertions (which
rules out using Chrome 14) AND file uploads (which requires a patched
Chrome 14) then you can't use chromedriver? Or has anyone devised a
workaround?

Thanks!
Carol

Pls update your chrome driver and try again. Assert the text exists issue should be fixed in the newest chrome driver.
