Is there a universal approach for Selenium to wait till all ajax content has loaded? (not tied to a specific website - so it works for every ajax website)

You are required to wait for Javascript and jQuery to finish loading. Execute Javascript to check if is 0 and document.readyState is complete, which will mean the JS and jQuery load is complete.

public boolean waitForJSandJQueryToLoad() {


    WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 30);


    // wait for jQuery to load

    ExpectedCondition<Boolean> jQueryLoad = new ExpectedCondition<Boolean>() {


      public Boolean apply(WebDriver driver) {

        try {

          return ((Long)((JavascriptExecutor)getDriver()).executeScript("return") == 0);


        catch (Exception e) {

          // no jQuery present

          return true;





    // wait for Javascript to load

    ExpectedCondition<Boolean> jsLoad = new ExpectedCondition<Boolean>() {


      public Boolean apply(WebDriver driver) {

        return ((JavascriptExecutor)getDriver()).executeScript("return document.readyState")





  return wait.until(jQueryLoad) && wait.until(jsLoad);
