Hi all,

I just posted in public-browser-tools-testing [1] responsible for the WebDriver spec [2] regarding testing of the permissions prompt and how to handle browser door hangers.

In the case of getUserMedia calls, this is something we're currently struggling with and the only option right now is to launch browsers with a command line argument / pref set to "always allow" media device access. However disabling a prompt is not the same as testing the application logic that deals with permissions.

I would encourage anyone having an opinion on the matter to contribute to the discussion on the browser tools testing mailing list.

Thanks,

Mathieu
