Web testers, please note: While Kantu supports the most commonly used "Selenese" commands of the Firefox Selenium IDE for Firefox, it is only a Selenium IDE Light. It is not intended as full replacement or port of the Firefox Selenium IDE. Our main focus is ease of use, good recording and reliable playback. That said, we plan to add support for additional commands with the next updates.
Screencast: Recording and Replay
This short screencast demos how to automate form filling on our online ocr website with Kantu. We record the macro, insert a PAUSE (3 seconds) command manually and then replay the macro twice.
