  • Selenium 2 (Selenium WebDriver) = Selenium 1.0 + WebDriver
  • I will not go in detail to explain selenium 1.0. It just include selenium IDE + Selenium RC and Selenium Grid
  • Selenium 2 has included selenium 1.0 + WebDriver
  • Selenium WebDriver is designed in a simpler and more concise programming interface along with addressing some limitations in the Selenium-RC API
  • Support various programing language to write Test Script (ex. Java, Paython, C#,Ruby,Php..)
  • Support various browsers to Test (ex. Chrome, FireFox, IE, Safari)
  • Support on various OS (ex. Windows, Linux, Mac)
  • Selenium-WebDriver was developed to better support dynamic web pages where elements of a page may change without the page itself being reloaded.
  • WebDriver’s goal is to supply a well-designed object-oriented API that provides improved support for modern advanced web-app testing problems.
