    Selenium IDE

    It is a web based automation testing tool which uses selenese command to generate test scripts, it is a UI based Record/Playback tool which works only in open browser.

    Selenium IDE is implemented as a Firefox plugin i.e, we can not use selenium IDE tool with other browsers.

    Whenever you open selenium IDE by default record button will be pressed i.e, selenium IDE is ready to record user actions. Not all actions is recorded like mouse movement and keyboard operation.

    Selenium IDE does not support encrypt and decrypt password. Using this tool we can do basic operations like play and record, selenium IDE does not support client-server application and stand alone applications, it only support web based applications.

      (i) ID
      (ii) Name
      (iii) Xpath
      (iv) CSS locators
