Getting Started with Selenium IDE - Installation

Selenium is the IDE to record,test and debug the web Scripts. It is the complete IDE which comes as the plugin to the browsers. It is easy to learn and implement for automating the testing.
To get started you need to install selenium into your web browser. It is very simple to install just visit the link below

Download the latest version under the Selenium IDE Block. The latest version is 1.9.0

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit Operating System , Actually operating system is not the concern .

I am using the default browser Firefox. In Firefox (Browser)  allow the  add on to install. Once the download has been completed you must need to restart the browser to complete the installation. Once you restart the browser you are ready to go.

In Firefox you can see this add on at

Tools - > Selenium IDE


Ctrl + Shift + S

Now the Selenium IDE will open as shown below

This is the good tool to make test automation. I will also post how to make automation in selenium in my future posts.

Happy Hacking ...
