Implicit Wait: 

  • While loading a web page in the browser some web elements take long time to load completely
  • Since WebDriver is not able to handle this situation immediately, implicit wait is used, which tells WebDriver to wait till the elements are loaded
  • Implicit wait is defined only once and it will remain same throughout the driver object instance
Explicit Wait:
  • An Explicit wait is defined to wait for some expected condition
  • These expected conditions can check whether the element is displayed on the web page or not, and can be clicked or not
  • Also referred as “Conditional Wait”
