When I use the following statement to clear up the cache and cookies
ActiveBrowser.ClearCache(ArtOfTest.WebAii.Core.BrowserCacheType.History);
I get the following exception "Clearing the browser cache is not yet supported for Safari" How do i prevent Safari from saving cookies and not to get this error.

Hello Rad,

I am sorry to report there is no solution to this problem. The Safari API does not include a "clear cookies" function (and it doesn't look like there ever will be in the Windows version since it appears they have stopped development of Safari for Windows). Since there's no API in Safari for Windows we can use, we cannot offer support for it. In this instance we are blocked by what Safari currently offers.

All the best,

We use the below code to not get this error:

            if (ActiveBrowser.BrowserType != BrowserType.Safari)
            {
                ActiveBrowser.ClearCache(ArtOfTest.WebAii.Core.BrowserCacheType.Cookies);
            }

But, of course this doesn't clear Safari cookies. So, if clearing cookies is required on Safari, then it wouldn't really make sense to run the test on Safari.
