Selenium is a test tool for web applications. Selenium tests run directly in a browser, just as real users do. And they run in Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh. No other test tool covers such a wide array of platform

Selenium enables you to record a browser session. For example, you could record the series of actions required to add a product to a shopping cart or register at a website.

You can use Selenium to record each significant client-side action that a user performs in a browser such as clicking buttons and links and entering text into input fields. After you record a test, you can run the test with any browser. For example, you can execute the same test with Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera to check that your application is cross-browser compatible.

Downloading Selenium

There are three different Selenium downloads:

* Selenium IDE Enables you to record a browser session. The Selenium IDE is a Firefox extension so it only works with Firefox. However, tests that you create with the Selenium IDE can be run on other browsers including Internet Explorer and Opera.

* Selenium Core Enables you to run Selenium tests. You can use the Selenium Core library to execute a suite of tests from a browser.

* Selenium RC Enables you to remotely control a browser. Includes a C# wrapper for Selenium so that you can remotely control a browser from a C# application. Selenium RC is especially useful when used with unit testing tools such as nUnit.


Selenium is an open-source project (released under the Apache license) created by the developers at ThoughtWorks. You can download Selenium from the OpenQA website at

Your link to the Authors site is wrong. Its pointing to an advertising site.
I needs to be an .org and not .com.

http://www.openqa.com/selenium/

It should be
http://www.openqa.org/selenium/

The included video works and shows how to use it. appears easy.

Since I say that there was only an Firefox plugin.
I found something to note to make it work with other browsers.

Get started with Selenium IDE for your first taste of Selenium's power. You can run Selenium IDE tests in any supported browser using Selenium Core.
