Polling refers to the method of periodically checking a condition until it becomes true. This is especially important in modern web application testing as many elements on the page might be loaded or altered dynamically. Playwright provides built-in automatic waiting mechanisms to handle such scenarios. This mechanism continuously "polls" or checks for a particular condition (like the presence or visibility of an element) to be met before executing the actions (like click, type etc). If the condition isn't met within a predefined timeout, Playwright throws an error. This feature makes Playwright tests resilient against timing issues and helps in creating stable end-to-end tests.
