WebDriver got this feature recently, configurable as:

   driver.manage.timeouts.implicit_wait = 1.5 # seconds

The default is not to wait at all. Capybara has its own implicit
waiting turned on by default (not sure how long).
Personally I'm a bigger fan of explicitly waiting where it's needed,
but I can see that this is a useful feature.
