Check the documentation outlining the different parts of Selenium. That's a good place to start as it guides you through the process of getting setup.

  • Selenium Core - more a component of selenium than a standalone project. Without going into the project history, Selenium was once just a collection of .js files that automated a browser. No one uses these directly, they're just there for legacy reasons.
  • Selenium IDE - a Firefox plugin for record/playback. You may want to start with this, to get used to the api, but you'll outgrow it soon
  • Selenium RC and when you do outgrow it, you'll use Selenium Remote Control. Selenium 1.x is a client-server architecture. You use the RC libraries to program tests that communicate with the server, and the server relays those commands to a browser.
  • Selenium Grid - a way to run Selenium testing on a distributed network of computers. Good for speeding things up once you've got a lot of tests.
  • Cubic Test - An eclipse-based tool that leverages selenium for testing. Not sure how popular it is.
  • Bromine - a web-based script and test management tool. Uses selenium RC to run tests.
