Selenium

Software Testers, Quality Analysts must have heard this word-Selenium. Apart from being an element in the periodic table, Selenium is an open-source automated testing suite, which provides the application testers to test web applications on cross-browsers and cross-platform. If you head over to Selenium Homepage, the first line mentions what is does perfectly- ” Selenium automates browsers“.

Selenium as a whole is not a single tool such as HP Quick Test Professional (QTP). It is a collection or suite of various software’s , each of which serves a specific purpose. The entire suite of tools, from the Selenium project result in a combination of testing tools which gives us the abilities to cover almost all the testing needs of a web application of all types.

I have discussed this in detail in my other blog here.
