I am a newbie to Selenium and trying to open localhost:3000 pages from Chrome via selenium driver. The code is :


import org.openqa.selenium.By;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException;


import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

public class SeleniumTests {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

        System.setProperty("", "C://chromedriver_win32//chromedriver.exe");

        WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();              




However, this opens my chrome window with "data;". The chrome version is 50.0.2661.94

Any idea what is the exact issue?

Specify the protocol you are using, so instead of localhost:3000, use http://localhost:3000. If that doesn't help, see the comment here on the Chromium issue tracker.

Hope this helps!
