Below is where you can find the latest releases of all the Selenium components. You can also find a list of previous releases, source code, and additional information for Maven users (Maven is a popular Java build tool).
Selenium Standalone Server
The Selenium Server is needed in order to run Remote Selenium WebDriver. Selenium 3.X is no longer capable of running Selenium RC directly, rather it does it through emulation and the WebDriverBackedSelenium interface.
Download version 3.5.3>
To run Selenium tests exported from IDE, use the Selenium Html Runner.
To use the Selenium Server in a Grid configuration see the wiki page.
The Internet Explorer Driver Server
This is required if you want to make use of the latest and greatest features of the WebDriver InternetExplorerDriver. Please make sure that this is available on your $PATH (or %PATH% on Windows) in order for the IE Driver to work as expected.
Selenium Client & WebDriver Language Bindings
In order to create scripts that interact with the Selenium Server (Selenium RC, Selenium Remote WebDriver) or create local Selenium WebDriver scripts, you need to make use of language-specific client drivers. These languages include both 1.x and 2.x style clients.
While language bindings for other languages exist, these are the core ones that are supported by the main project hosted on google code.

SafariDriver - DEPRECATED - use Apple's SafariDriver with Safari 10+
SafariDriver now requires manual installation of the extension prior to automation
Selenium IDE is a Firefox plugin which records and plays back user interactions with the browser. Use this to either create simple scripts or assist in exploratory testing. It can also export Remote Control or WebDriver scripts, though they tend to be somewhat brittle and should be overhauled into some sort of Page Object-y structure for any kind of resiliency.

VisGrid is a GUI for Selenium Grid. You can start hub, create and attach a Selenium node very easily and quickly.
Selenium IDE Plugins
Selenium IDE can be extended through its own plugin system. Here are a number of plugins that have been created using it. For more information on how to create your own plugin or have it listed, see the plugin tutorial page.

SeLite is a family of extensions that improve Selenium IDE. It
- enables user scripts to be more effective
- enhances development environment
- facilitates team work.
For alternative downloads and source code choose the components.
It runs template-based, customisable or fully custom validation of the tested website after every Selenese step. It records server errors etc.
It allows smoother development of Selenium Core extensions (saved as standalone files). It reloads them automatically on change.
It accepts Selenese commands/comments from another Selenium IDE instance. It enables indentation of Selenese commands/comments, so they form blocks.
It provides practical Selenese commands, for example for entering/selecting random input values.
It provides mid-level objects for accessing test data in SQLite. Test frameworks can describe a schema and access the data as objects with little need for writing SQL.
It's beneficial if your web application uses window.onbeforeunload to get confirmation when the user tries to leave an unsubmitted form etc. This extension helps to validate that the confirmation shows up exactly when it should. It can also validate custom behaviour.
It allows user Core or IDE extensions of Selenium IDE to declare dependancy on other extensions (and optionally which versions). It validates all dependancies. It loads all those extensions in the correct order.
It enables 'in place' editing of commands/comments in Selenium IDE. It adds key shortcuts.
This productivity add-on is affected by Firefox defect "tree.inputField's type as autocomplete fails". Vote for that bug, please.
Your vote is essential. Otherwise Mozilla may take years to fix it. Please, also vote for other third party issues.
It provides miscellaneous internal components for various parts of SeLite group of extensions.
It enables user scripts to present data for reporting, confirmation, selection or data entry. Presentation layer is in HTML, optionally benefiting from client-side templating, such as PURE. Together with SelBlocks Global it allows user scripts to run interactively.
It runs a sequence of all test suites marked as favorites in Favorites (Selenium IDE). It supports team work: it facilitates export/import of favorites by representing them relative to user's home folder.

It allows definition of custom configuration schemas (modules), consisting of single-valued and multi-valued fields, either free-type or choice lists.
It facilitates team work through sharing of chosen parts of configuration in manifest files. Users can override parts of the shared configuration through manifest files or visual interface. They can have multiple sets of preferences and they can choose between them when running the scripts.
It manages SQLite DB connection(s). It can be used with other extensions from SeLite family, or on its own.
It's needed by SelBlocks Global.
