Selectors/ locators is at the heart of automation testing. Learning how to identify them (without relying on tools) is a critical skill to becoming an automation tester.
Locators in Selenium, Cypress, WebdriverIO… can be referred to as one of the most critical components required to build effective and robust automaton tests, in turn making your tests become allot less Flaky. Its ideally the building block of all automation tests / scripts. It helps locate the GUI elements through which multiple user actions can be performed. These are one of the important parameters for scripting, and if they end up to be incorrect or brittle, they may lead to script failure. A good scripting base foundation requires elements to be located appropriately
Tools cannot be relied upon, as they do not often provide the most efficient selector/ locator available. Identifying selectors/ locators is also a common question asked in coding exercise during interviews.
