Selenium – JavaScript Web Application Security Testing Tool

Use Netsparker


Selenium is a test tool for web applications. Selenium tests run directly in a browser, just as real users do. And they run in Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Firefox on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh. No other test tool covers such a wide array of platforms.

  • Browser compatibility testing. Test your application to see if it works correctly on different browsers and operating systems. The same script can run on any Selenium platform.
  • System functional testing. Create regression tests to verify application functionality and user acceptance.

Try it out! Get started with Selenium IDE for your first taste of Selenium’s power. You can run Selenium IDE tests in any supported browser using Selenium Core.

Any Language! Want to write tests in your favorite programming language? Try Selenium Remote Control; it currently supports writing tests in Java, .NET, Perl, Python and Ruby.

Supported Platforms:

Windows:

  • Internet Explorer 6.0
  • Firefox 0.8 to 1.5
  • Mozilla Suite 1.6+, 1.7+
  • Seamonkey 1.0
  • Opera 8

Mac OS X:

  • Safari 1.3+
  • Firefox 0.8 to 1.5
  • Camino 1.0a1
  • Mozilla Suite 1.6+, 1.7+
  • Seamonkey 1.0

Linux:

  • Firefox 0.8 to 1.5
  • Mozilla Suite 1.6+, 1.7+
  • Konqueror

Selenium uses JavaScript and Iframes to embed a test automation engine in your browser. This technique should work with any JavaScript-enabled browser. Because different browsers handle JavaScript somewhat differently, usually they have to tweak the engine to support a wide range of browsers on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

    So now we post links to all of the sites we find with vulnerabilities?

    You know the only way for sites to be secure on the web is to ban tools like this right?

    If we all just chant la la la, the interweb would be a safer place.

    Awesome plugin.

    Heh, that sounds dangerous gyaresu, we only advocate testing sites that you own/administer of course :D

    Banning tools like this won’t make anything more secure, security through ignorance/obscurity isn’t the way forwards.

    People should learn what exists and how to secure their sites/code properly. That’s what will make things more secure.

    BTW Your artwork is awesome! Fancy making some Darknet wallpapers ;)

    Well flattered as I am Darknet, you’ll have to ask Milo

    She provides the WordPress theme (free) that I am playing with on the gyaresu.org site.
    Milo did however reply to my email after I enquired about changing the time on the flash clock incorporated in my theme. So She is around…

    gyaresu: Ah my bad, sarcasm doesn’t translate well in flat text format :) Ah ok, misunderstood, I thought the Flickr pictures in your sidebar were yours, but they are from the creator of the theme. Got it!

    Glad you like the site anyway, we try and dig out all the juicy morsels we can.
