If you are interesting in software testing and desperately want to work in software testing profile then this post is surely for you, as we know that selenium testing is an important aspect of  software testing so you should go through this at least once.


SELENIUM is a tool for authoring tests without learning test scripting language like selenium IDE. Selenium is not just a tool but actually it is a cluster of independent tools.

And selenium testing is a testing which is performed by using selenium tool.


If we talk about the functioning and scenario of today's IT industries or companies then it is known to everyone that there is a mass movement towards automation testing. Not only this but the cluster of manual testing scenario  has also raised a great demand to make to manual testing automated by using various tools such as selenium.
 There are numerous benefits which a software tester gets if he/she implements automation testing. Some of those benefits are:
  • It saves time and cost to a great extent.
  • Helps in testing a large test matrix
  • Enables parallel execution of two air more test cases.
  • Improves accuracy, therefore, helps in reducing human errors to a great extent.

Selenium testing is the best kind of testing in automation and selenium is considered as the best tool in order to make testing fully automated. The reasons behind this consideration is that:
  • It is an open source and is readily available in online market.
  • Also aims to support multiple languages
  • It has active repository development         
  • It is compatible with various browsers and platforms.
Selenium is designed in such a way that it can be able to support and encourage various functional aspects of web based application in automation testing.
As this tool is existed as open source hence it is readily available to the professionals and become their prior choice, every time wen it comes to automation testing.

As we said above that selenium is not a single tool but it is a set of several tools therefore, only because of this reason it is referred to as the suite.
This suite consists of following tools.
  1. Selenium Integrated Development Environment
  2. Selenium Webdriver
  3. Selenium Remote control
  4. Selenium Grid.
we will discuss these tools thoroughly in our upcoming posts OF SELENIUM TESTING.
Sometimes users often confused that what is Selenium 1 and Selenium 2, So let me tell you that selenium 2 is actually a combination of selenium RC and web driver. Whereas selenium 1 has selenium RC ALONE.
