Browser Capabilities

Selenium requires a number of desired capabilities to be set when starting a new desktop browser session. In addition to the default Selenium capabilities there are additional ones required and/or supported by Bitbar to allow getting even more out of the desktop browsers. You can use the capabilities creator to help get all the capabilities correct.
