Selenium Testing Tools


Let’s learn about various Selenium Testing tools in this tutorial. Selenium is a set of different software tools each with a different approach to supporting browser automation.

Selenium Testing Tools

Selenium is a suite of tools to automate web browsers across many platforms. Each Selenium tool caters to different testing needs. The most common tools are as follows:

Selenium WebDriver

WebDriver is the main component of Selenium that provides a programming interface to interact with web browsers. It supports various programming languages like Java, C#, Python, Perl, Ruby, etc. WebDriver allows you to simulate user interactions on the web page.

Selenium IDE

Selenium IDE(Integrated Development Environment) is a record-and-playback tool. It is a browser plugin that is used to create and run test cases that are generated in the IDE by recording the interactions/navigation of the expected user workflow with the browser. Upon recording the test cases, they can be replayed multiple times. Selenium IDE test scripts can be exported to many programming languages such as C#, Java, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, etc.

Selenium Grid

Selenium Grid is used for distributed large-scale testing. We can run numerous test cases simultaneously across different test machines. The Hub-Node arrangement enables parallel execution. The Hub takes charge of the tests being executed on different browsers on multiple operating system platforms like Windows, Linux, etc.
