Thanks Željko! 1. I used the require 'spec' so that I could execute the script in SciTE to check for simple errors before running spec from the command line. To your point, I will make sure not to include it on future scripts.
2. Agree with you on the before(:all)/(:each) - I'm still figuring out how that works practically in my tests. > What is this? > > @browser ||= Watir::Browser.new 3. I actually took that from the RSpec example here: http://wiki.openqa.org/display/WTR/RSpec I hate to admit that I implemented it without knowing exactly what it did, but in testing it did not seem to change behavior. I have not used it with any other scripts but this first venture into RSpec.
