How to open a browser windows silently in the background

0 votes
I have a selenium test suite that runs many tests and on each new test it opens a browser window on top of any other windows I have open. Any way to tell selenium or the OS (MAC) to open the windows in the background?

It is a little bit of a hack

How to hide Firefox window (Selenium WebDriver)?

Is it possible to hide the browser in Selenium RC?

You can 'supposedly', pass in some parameters into Chrome, specifically: --no-startup-window. Note that for some browsers, especially IE, it will hurt your tests to not have it run in focus.You can also hack about a bit with AutoIT, to hide the window once it's opened.
