What is Selenium IDE

Selenium IDE is a Firefox Add-on developed originally by Shinya Kasatani as a way to use the original Selenium Core code without having to copy Selenium Core onto the server. Selenium Core is the key JavaScript modules that allow Selenium to drive the browser. It has been developed using JavaScript so that it can interact with DOM (Document Object Model) using native JavaScript calls.

Selenium IDE was developed to allow testers and developers to record their actions as they follow the workflow that they need to test.
