Web Application Testing with Selenium

Selenium Core provides basic Web application testing, and Selenium RC allows you to write test scripts in other programming languages, such as Perl, Java, C# and others.
Summary

As you've seen, Selenium is a powerful Web application testing tool that supports many different languages and has a number of different frameworks built around the Selenium Core. It's an open-source project with an active community, which, at the time of this writing, is working full steam on version 2.0, which will include many new exciting features.

Interesting article, thanks. I've been using Selenium for functional testing, but was forced to running different browsers on different operating systems under VirtualBox for cross browser testing. BrowserSeal looks promising, will check it out.
