Selenium Remote Control project is a test tool that allows you to write automated web application UI tests in any programming language against any HTTP website using any mainstream JavaScript-enabled browser.

Selenium Remote Control provides a Selenium Server, which can automatically start/stop/control any supported browser. It works by using Selenium Core, a pure-HTML+JS library that performs automated tasks in JavaScript.

The Selenium Server communicates directly with the browser using AJAX (XmlHttpRequest). You can send commands directly to the Server using simple HTTP GET/POST requests; that means that you can use any programming language that can make HTTP requests to automate Selenium tests on the browser. To further ease this process, we provide wrapper objects for a number of mainstream programming languages (Java, .NET, Perl, Python, and Ruby).

Finally, the Selenium Server acts as a client-configured HTTP proxy, to stand in between the browser and your website. This allows a Selenium-enabled browser to run JavaScript on arbitrary websites.

The Selenium Server is great for testing complex AJAX-based web user interfaces under a Continuous Integration system. It is also an ideal solution for users of Selenium Core or Selenium IDE who want to write tests in a more expressive programming language than the Selenese HTML table format customarily used with Selenium Core.

What's New in This Release:

· This version includes a bunch of new features, including frame support, multiWindow support (for testing apps that don't like to run in a subframe), a Konqueror browser launcher, new cookie-management actions, and support for Firefox 2.0 and IE7.
· It also includes experimental support for SSL directly in the Selenium proxy and a new highly experimental "proxy injection" mode that gives more control over the application under testing by modifying it in the HTTP proxy.
