Selenium 1.0 Testing Tools Beginner's Guide by David Burns
Selenium is a suite of browser automation tools for automating web browsers across a variety of platforms. Most of the big-name browser vendors support it. And many of these either have taken or are taking steps to make Selenium a native component of their browsers. Selenium runs on many browsers and operating systems, and a variety of programming languages and testing frameworks can control it. Also, Selenium can automate tedious web-based administration tasks. Selenium comes in two primary forms: the Selenium WebDriver , which enables developers to scale and distribute scripts across many different environments and create browser-based regression automation suites and tests, and the Selenium IDE , an integrated developer environment useful for creating quick bug reproduction scripts and for exploratory testing aided by automation. Most developers get started with Selenium IDE.
