Re: Checking the version of Chrome if selenium fails to start driver Topic is solved

Warning: lateral thinking/partly off topic answer: You could also keep an alternate installation of Chrome via the PortableApps version of Chrome, make it not auto-update, and use it only for the tasks you're doing your fancy work on, which probably is in a more controlled environment of known and/o...
