How to Download browser driver?

Download browser driver from the internet. Here in my case, I am using driver for Google Chrome. However, you can use other browser also.

Extract the driver and place it in the c->proramme File folder for easy access. However, you can place it anywhere in your computer. Copy this path.

Write the following python code in an IDE. I am using Visual Editor.

 from selenium import webdriver
PATH=“C:Program Fileschromedriver.exe”
driver.close() # for quitting the current tab of a browser.
driver.quit() # for quiting the Browser.
print(driver.title) # for printing the title of a web page.
