Note to the Reader - Docs Being Revised for Selenium 2.0!¶
Hello, and welcome! The Documentation Team would like to welcome you, and to thank you for being interested in Selenium.
We are currently updating this document for the Selenium 2.0 release. This means we are currently writing and editing new material, and revising old material. While reading, you may experience typos or other minor errors. If so, please be patient with us. Rather than withholding information until it’s finally complete, we are frequently checking-in new writing and revisions as we go. Still, we do check our facts first and are confident the info we’ve submitted is accurate and useful. Still, if you find an error, particularly in one of our code examples, please let us know. You can create a new issue (https://github.com/SeleniumHQ/www.seleniumhq.org/issues).
We have worked very, very hard on this document. And, as just mentioned, we are once again working hard, on the new revision. Why? We absolutely believe this is the best tool for web-application testing. We feel its extensibility and flexibility, along with its tight integration with the browser, is unmatched by available proprietary tools. We are very excited to promote Selenium and, hopefully, to expand its user community. In short, we really want to “get the word out” about Selenium.
We believe you will be similarly excited once you understand how Selenium approaches test automation. It’s quite different from other automation tools. Whether you are brand-new to Selenium, or have been using it for awhile, we believe this documentation will truly help to spread the knowledge around. We have aimed our writing so that those completely new to test automation can use this document as a stepping stone. However, at the same time we have included a number of advanced, test design topics that should be interesting to the experienced software engineer. In both cases we have written the “Sel-Docs” to help test engineers of all abilities to quickly become productive writing your own Selenium tests. Experienced users and “newbies” alike will benefit from our Selenium User’s Guide.
Thanks very much for reading.– the Selenium Documentation Team
