Can Selenium webdriver attach to already open browser window

0 votes
After a lot of searching I believe this feature is not implemented yet- but does anyone know of any workaround implemented for Java with selenium1/2 that i can try? If a different process started the instance of the browser , can webdriver connect to that window? Any workarounds that can be tried. Any pointers is much appreciated.

Nope, it can't be done. It's one of the oldest feature requests for WebDriver, and it isn't going to happen any time soon.
