BringBrowserToForeground - Selenium IDE command

BringBrowserToForeground brings the browser window to front. It is useful if you want to make sure that the web browser is in the foreground. Normally when you start a macro the Kantu UI is in the foreground. Our users tell us that having the browser in the foreground is especially useful when launching Kantu macros from bookmarks - because typically in this case you want to see than what Kantu does inside the browser - and often manually continue where Kantu stopped.

For example, assume a Kantu macro runs a login sequence and navigates to a certain sub page. With BringBrowserToForeground in the macro you can be sure that your browser is in front and you can start your work on this page right aways.

BringBrowserToForeground is also useful to make sure the tab in which the macro runs is in the foreground, so that elements can receive the focus.
