Google Search and Visible Text Result Confirmation

There was a presentation at the the GTAC conference aimed at finding ways to confirm correct and well-performing operation of multiple Google search engine top pages from a variety of countries. This example was prompted by that presentation.

The test requirement is to confirm, in a very simple manner if possible, whether a standard search page (with standard namings of elements), used in a variety of countries, works acceptably well. And, maybe along the way, figure out how long a chosen search actually takes.

The eValid solution uses the built in "motion commands" so that the resulting script that does the work parametrically is very short and is 100% desktop safe.

Full details are found at Google Search and Visible Text Confirmation. You'll see that we were able to run 15 instances of the script -- i.e. for 15 different Google home pages -- in just under 40 seconds. Comments on how to further simplify this are welcome!
