Selenium IDE

Selenium IDE is one of the 4 components of Selenium. Out of all the 4 components of Selenium, only Selenium IDE has the record and playback option.

The below are the four different components in Selenium:

  • Selenium IDE
  • Selenium RC
  • Selenium WebDriver
  • Selenium Grid

Using Selenium IDE, its very easy to automate the test cases. Unlike other components of Selenium, Selenium IDE dont need any programming knowledge for automating the test cases.

Along with its easiness for automating the tests, Selenium IDE also has some drawbacks. Selenium IDE needs to be used in simpler projects and maintenance of Automated Test Cases increases when the complexity of the Project under test increases.

Out of all the components of Selenium, Selenium WebDriver is the most used one. Though Selenium IDE is least used, it will help us in learning Selenium in a better way. If you are new to Selenium and want to learning it in a better way, they dont miss the below Selenium IDE posts:
