Selenium IDE is an integrated development environment for Selenium tests. Selenium IDE is implemented as a Firefox extension, and allows you to record, edit, and debug tests. Selenium IDE includes the entire Selenium Core, allowing you to easily and quickly record and play back tests in the actual environment that they will run.

Selenium IDE is not only recording tool: it is a complete IDE. You can choose to use its recording capability, or you may edit your scripts by hand. With autocomplete support and the ability to move commands around quickly, Selenium IDE is the ideal environment for creating Selenium tests no matter what style of tests you prefer.

Here are some key features of "Selenium IDE":
Easy record and playback
Intelligent field selection will use IDs, names, or XPath as needed
Autocomplete for all common Selenium commands
Walk through tests
Debug and set breakpoints
Save tests as HTML, Ruby scripts, or any other format
Support for Selenium user-extensions.js file
Option to automatically assert the title of every page

What's New in This Release:
Selenium IDE 0.8.5 did not work in French version of Firefox.
In previous versions, page loads were not detected properly in frames when playing tests inside Selenium IDE.
Both of these problems have been fixed.
