Selenium has many projects that combine to make a versatile testing system.
Selenium WebDriver can drive a browser natively either locally or on remote machines.
Selenium Grid takes Selenium Remote Control to another level by running tests on many servers at the same time, cutting down on the time it takes to test multiple browsers or operating systems.
Selenium IDE is a Chrome and Firefox extension that makes it easy to record and playback tests in the browser.
