Scroll To Top Of Page With Capybara

During a browser-based Capybara test, you may get partially scrolled down in the page which can obscure or overlay DOM elements. A sure-fire way to scroll back to the top is by executing the following line of JavaScript:

page.execute_script "window.scrollTo(0,0)"

This will scroll to 0,0 which is the top-most, left-most corner of the browser.
