What is Selenium IDE?


Selenium IDE is a Firefox add-on used for recording user actions for testing and playing it back without having to write programs. It has been developed using JavaScript so that it can interact with Document Object Model (DOM) using native JavaScript calls.

Testers or test engineers can record their actions according to the test steps in test cases or scenarios. After installing Selenium IDE plug-in on Firefox, Selenium IDE will display under the Tools menu as shown on the picture below.
