Selenium Chrome driver nuances

When writing test, you generally tend to run the test in one browser and expect it to work on all the rest (except maybe Internet Explorer). I had ran my tests on Firefox and they succeeded but not on Chrome.

In Firefox, if you click on an element that is not currently visible on the screen, the browser will click allow it and not cause any issues. However, Chrome will complain saying that the click will be caught by another element (depending on how you structured your HTML). So, you have to move to the element before you can click on it.
