Fun Fact About Selenium
The name Selenium started as a joke that Jason Huggins, the creator of Selenium, made to his team. During the time Selenium was being developed, there was another popular automated testing framework that was created by a company called Mercury Interactive. It is pretty well-known that selenium (the element) is an antidote for mercury poisoning, so Jason suggested this name as a joke, and it stuck.
About Selenium IDE
Selenium IDE is the simplest framework in the Selenium Suite and is the easiest to learn. Because of this, it should only be used as a prototyping tool. You can export Selenium IDE results in a format that is usable in Selenium RC and WebDriver. One downside to Selenium IDE is that it is online available in Firefox.
Selenium Remote Control
Selenium RC was the first automated web testing tool that allowed users to use their programming language preference. It can support programming languages such as Java, C#, PHP, Python, Perl, and Ruby. While there are more benefits to RC than there are to IDE, there are a few downsides, including a more complicated installation process, a need for programming knowledge, and slower execution time.
Selenium Grid is used with Selenium RC to run parallel tests at the same time across different machines and browsers. With this program, you can run multiple tests at the same time. This saves a ton of time in the automated testing process.
