You can use the Navigate interface to do navigate back and forward in a browser.

It has methods to move back, forward as well as to refresh a page. These are the following methods that you can use.

  1. driver.navigate().forward(); – to navigate to the next web page with reference to the browser’s history
  2. driver.navigate().back(); – takes back to the previous web page with reference to the browser’s history
  3. driver.navigate().refresh(); – to refresh the current web page thereby reloading all the web elements
  4. driver.navigate().to(“url”); – to launch a new web browser window and navigate to the specified URL
