What selenium can do and can't do?



Welcome to our latest blog post! Today we’re going to talk about the powerful open-source tool Selenium and what it can (and can’t) do.

First, let’s talk about what Selenium can do. Selenium is a tool that can automate web browsers. This means it can be used to perform tasks such as:

  • Filling out forms
  • Clicking buttons
  • Navigating pages
  • Scraping information from websites
  • Automating testing of web applications

This makes Selenium a valuable tool for ensuring that a website or application is working correctly. By automating testing Selenium can help to identify and fix bugs quickly and easily.

Now let’s talk about what Selenium can’t do. Selenium is a web browser automation tool and as such, it cannot automate tasks outside of a web browser. This means it cannot automate tasks within a native application. Additionally, Selenium does not have built-in support for automating tasks such as image recognition. So additional tools or libraries would need to be used in conjunction with Selenium for these types of tasks.

In conclusion, Selenium is a powerful open-source tool that can automate web browsers and help with automating testing of web applications. While it has its limitations it can be a valuable addition to a software testing company’s toolkit.
