Selenium IDE – Automated testing of websites

Someone at work came across Selenium IDE. It is a nice little add-on for Firefox for testing websites. It allows you to script out tests and run them. Seems pretty powerful for a free tool. I’m not going to say a lot since the documentation on there site can do that for me. But if you need something for scripted website testing then this is worth a look.

Documentation found here: http://seleniumhq.org/docs/03_selenium_ide.html

The plug-in is based on Selenium Core which is a DHTML test execution framework. There are all sorts of nice things built from and around this framework, allowing everything from browser based testing too integration with unit tests.

Worth a look anyway.
