    Comment on it

    The biggest advantage of Selenium is that its an open source automation tool same as HP's quick test pro, it is created by Jason Huggins in 2004, who was an engineer at thought works, he was working on an app that required frequent testing, then he come to a conclusion that manual testing of large app is inefficient ,he made one small java script program that automatically control the browser's actions and the name of that program was JavaScriptTestRunner

    How it got this name Selenium-

    Once jason cracked a joke within his team it was regarding the another automated testing framework (QTP) that was popular during Selenium's development, and QTP was made by the company called Mercury Interactive, Since Selenium is a well-known antidote for Mercury poisoning, Jason given that name and his team members took it.

    Currently It has four components -

    1. Selenium IDE
    2. Selenium RC
    3. Web driver
    4. Selenium Grid

    first Single Selenium rc came into light and is named as Selenium1 later in 2008 when Selenium Team decided to merge Web Driver and Selenium RC to form a more powerful tool and merging of Selenium rc and web driver is named as Selenium2 .
