Verify Element Present vs Element Visible


What are the major differences between these two keywords? Are there situations when one is preferred over the other?

“Present”, as I understand it, means the element is present in the DOM. It does not mean the element is visible. It does not mean the element is clickable or usable, though it maybe.“Visible” means the element is like it says, visible (and, therefore, also implies it is present in the DOM – how else could it be visible? ;)).

Hope this helps…
