How to check for error pages (Page cannot be displayed)?


This is the first article in my “How to?” series and i hope there would be many more that i would be able to write in future.

While testing any web application there can be instances where the application is not available or you get a page cannot be displayed, internal server error etc and need to take some action based on the same. I present a very generic function which returns True/False whether there is an error on the page or not. The best part about this function is that it is compatible with both IE and FF
