The table of browser types in does not say that Google Chrome/Chromium is available on python2.7, even though it is (

Also, according to the docs for python.3.5 ( , just below the table), support for google chrome/chromium was added in python3.3, so maybe this was backported to python2.7 and the docs not updated?

It's due to issue 17536 and particularly 5a1429e9b621
I presume doko would be happy to follow up on that.

We (Elena Oat and I) tried to open web browser Chrome/Chromium in versions 2.7, 3.3, 3.5 and 3.6. It seems working and so updated in the table for version 2.7. The patch issue26247.diff is submitted.

Thanks for the patch, however since this is for the 2.7 branch, it should only say in which 2.7.x version this has been added.  The note should also use the .. versionadded:: directive.
All minor releases are tagged in the repo, so you can try to update the repo to each 2.7.x version and check in which one chrome support has been introduced.

Made changes according to last comment by Ezio.

The ``versionadded::`` directive should only be used to annotate descriptions of new API entries.  While it would be correctly applied to the ``Chrome`` and ``Chromium`` classes, those are not separately documented here, but are only listed in the table.

See for further discussion on the use of ``versionadded::``.
msg261572 - (view) Author: Manvi B (Manvi B) * Date: 2016-03-11 13:52
Modified the patch with this directive instead   ``versionchanged::``.

Sorry; I guess I wasn't clear.

``versionadded::`` and ``versionchanged::`` are applied to specific API points (modules, classes, methods, attributes) that are identified structurally in the documentation.  That isn't the case for this.

While a bit of text noting the addition is less discoverable for documentation processors, I believe it to be sufficient.

@Fred L. Drake, Jr. (fdrake)
Is it okay if I can remove ``versionchanged::``. And simply say that,
Support for Chrome/Chromium has been added from 2.7.5 version or later.

Submitted the patch with the text noting below the table.

Thanks for getting this documented!
