History of the Selenium Project
and Selenium Grid are the Selenium Projects.
• Selenium first came to life in 2004 when Jason Huggins was testing an internal application at ThoughtWorks.
• In 2006 an engineer at Google named Simon Stewart started work on a project he called WebDriver.
• in 2008, the whole Selenium team decided to merge Selenium Webdriver with Selenium RC in order to
form more powerful tool called Selenium 2.0
(Selenium IDE + Selenium RC + Selenium Grid)
Selenium 2.0 (Selenium 1.0 + WebDriver)
(Selenium IDE + Selenium RC + Selenium WebDriver + Selenium Grid)
