What is Selenium Automation


          Selenium is an open source automated tool for web applications across different browsers. It is quite similar to HP Quick Test Pro (QTP) only that Selenium focuses on automating web-based applications. Selenium has four components like
  • Selenium IDE
  • Selenium RC
  • Selenium Grid
  • Selenium WebDriver        
     Selenium RC and Selenium WebDriver are combined to form a single framework called Selenium 2.    

Who developed Selenium ?

                     Primarily, Selenium was created by Jason Huggins in 2004. An engineer at ThoughtWorks, he was working on a web application that required frequent testing. Having realized that the repetitious manual testing of their application was becoming more and more inefficient, he created a JavaScript program that would automatically control the browser's actions. He named this program as the "JavaScriptTestRunner."
Seeing potential in this idea to help automate other web applications, he made JavaScriptRunner open-source which was later re-named as Selenium Core.
