reload

Creates a new Selenium session with your current capabilities. This is useful if you test highly stateful application where you need to clean the browser session between the tests in your spec file to avoid creating hundreds of single test files with WDIO. Be careful though, this command affects your test time tremendously since spawning new Selenium sessions is very time consuming especially when using cloud services.
