Selenium Testing Tool Tutorial

Increase Developer Productivity

Selenium automates browsers - that is how it is described at the community page. Selenium has come a long way in 12 years to become a W3C standard. Selenium simply automates all those actions you do when you test a web app manually - click on items, select buttons, fill in information and observe the appropriate text or image returns. Selenium lets you run tests automatically and in parallel so you can speed your testing by up to 10x. Sauce Labs offers a cloud-based automated testing platform that lets you run your Selenium tests - right from your CI server.

Selenium supports the most popular scripting languages, including Node.js, Java, Python, PHP, Ruby, or C# so you can be productive, developing test scripts with the language you know best. Your developers, QA, and even project managers can develop and review tests for all your apps, speeding up the time to market.
