2018 will be the year when the Selenium IDE rises like a phoenix from the ashes… of the legacy Firefox add-ons.
It all started in early August 2017 when we lauchned the Kantu Selenium IDE to implement a modern Selenium IDE for Chrome. Then in late August a computer science group from a Taiwanese University released the Sideex IDE for Chrome. And in September the Selenium core team announced that they as well will implement an update of the original Selenium IDE for Firefox, which - you might remember - stopped working last year as the new Firefox Quantum extension system no longer supports legacy addons. And just before the year ended a company called Katalon released yet another Selenium IDE, an expanded and rebranded version of Sideex.
So which Selenium IDE to use? Short answer: It depends. Longer answer: See our overview table below.
