best way to detect an element on a web page for seleniumRC in java
In my opinion, the most accurate way is XPath as you can use XPath’s to describe the exact position of an element within the DOM, however there are some instances where CSS locators work better than XPaths.
Using selenium’s ID locator is the most simple, but unless the element you are looking for has an ID not always useful.
The summary is really there is no one answer it depends what you want out of a locator, and which browsers you are testing. I personally use XPath in 99% of instances.
I personally use XPath almost exclusively with the occasional CSS locator.
