In this webinar, you’ll learn how the newly re-factored Selenium IDE is guaranteed to augment your testing efforts, regardless of your team’s automation “maturity” level, or your personal technical knowledge or experience.

  • Why codeless solutions are worth paying attention to
  • 10 traits of a great codeless testing tool
  • Key features in the New Selenium IDE:
    • Reliable test playback with “locator fallback”
    • Enhance tests with control flow logic (e.g. if, else if, else, while, do, while, times)
    • Built-in debugger for diagnosing issues in your tests
    • Turn-key parallel, cross-browser execution that can be used on CI
    • Add/modify commands in the IDE, or integrate with a third-party provider through plugins
  • Roadmap – what’s in store for the New Selenium IDE

Dave also shared how he went from a record-and-playback naysayer to the Selenium IDE maintainer.
