You might have heard of Selenium testing. Selenium is a free automated testing framework that is used to validate web applications across different browsers and platforms. For this we can use multiple programming languages like Java, C#, Python, etc. to create Selenium Test Scripts. Any kind of software testing that is done by using the Selenium testing tool is referred as Selenium testing. The STC technologies are giving best software training in Cochin with different courses and proper teaching strategies.
When we talk about Selenium we need to understand that, it is not just a single tool, but it is a suite of software. Here each piece caters to different QA testing needs of an organization. Here is the list of Selenium tools:
- Selenium Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
- Selenium Remote Control (RC)
- Selenium Grid
Later on with advancements, Selenium Grid and WebDriver are merged into a single framework called Selenium 2. Selenium 1 refers to the Selenium RC.

Due to this reason, many choose to have Selenium testing for their needs.
The advantages of Selenium testing had made it popular for testing. Even though QTP has more advanced capabilities, Selenium outweighs QTP due to three main reasons – Cost, Flexibility and parallel testing. The cost of Selenium testing is completely free. Selenium is more flexible because of number of programming languages, browsers and platforms it can support. Moreover, Selenium can do parallel testing free of cost, which the QTP is capable to do only with the use of Quality Center. The STC technologies is offering software courses in Kochi with expert faculties in the field and is giving 100% placement assistance.
