Selenium IDE allows recording, editing, and debugging tests. It was previously known as Selenium Recorder.
We can automatically record and edit the scripts manually providing auto-completion support and the ability to move commands quickly.
The plugin records the scripts in Selenese, a test scripting language for Selenium.
Selenese is the set of selenium commands which are used to test your web application.
We can test the broken links, the existence of some object on the UI, Ajax functionality, Alerts, window, list options, and lot more using Selenese.
Selenese provides commands for performing actions in a browser (click a link, select an option), and for retrieving data from the resulting pages.
