it('should get/delete current session using the protocol command', function () {
// retrieve the resolved capabilities of the specified session
var caps = browser.session();
console.log(caps); // outputs: { browserName: "...", ... }
// you can also just call (see http://webdriver.io/guide/testrunner/browserobject.html)
console.log(browser.desiredCapabilities);
// delete the session (equivalent to `end` action command)
// Note: the wdio testrunner doesn't allow to call this command manually. It will close the session
// when the test has ended.
browser.session('delete'); // throws an error
