Selenium 4 alpha versions have much awaited native support for Chrome Dev Protocol through “DevTools” interface. This helps us getting Chrome Development properties such as Application Cache, Fetch, Network, Performance, Profiler, Resource Timing, Security and Target CDP domains etc.

Chrome DevTools is a set of web developer tools built directly into the Google Chrome browser. DevTools can help you edit pages on-the-fly and diagnose problems quickly, which ultimately helps you build better websites, faster.

Emulate Geo Location:

Some applications have different features and functionalities across different locations. Automating such applications is difficult because it is hard to emulate the geo locations in the browser using Selenium. But with the help of Devtools, we can easily emulate them. Below code snippet demonstrates that.

import org.openqa.selenium.devtools.DevTools;

public void geoLocationTest(){
  ChromeDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
  Map coordinates = new HashMap()
      put("latitude", 50.2334);
      put("longitude", 0.2334);
      put("accuracy", 1);
  driver.executeCdpCommand("Emulation.setGeolocationOverride", coordinates);
  driver.get("<your site url>");

# Please raise a PR to add code sample

using System.Threading.Tasks;
using OpenQA.Selenium.Chrome;
using OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools;
// Replace the version to match the Chrome version
using OpenQA.Selenium.DevTools.V87.Emulation;

namespace dotnet_test {
  class Program {
    public static void Main(string[] args) {
    public static async Task GeoLocation() {
      ChromeDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      DevToolsSession devToolsSession = driver.CreateDevToolsSession();
      var geoLocationOverrideCommandSettings = new SetGeolocationOverrideCommandSettings();

      geoLocationOverrideCommandSettings.Latitude = 51.507351;
      geoLocationOverrideCommandSettings.Longitude = -0.127758;
      geoLocationOverrideCommandSettings.Accuracy = 1;

      await devToolsSession

        driver.Url = "<your site url>";
