This lesson will serve as an installation guide for browsers' set-up.

Installing browsers

The biggest advantage of Selenium over other web test frameworks is that it supports all major web browsers: Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer/Edge, etc. We will see how to install these browsers in the upcoming section in this lesson.


To run Selenium tests in Google Chrome, we need ChromeDriver to be installed in our working directory.

Installing ChromeDriver is easy. Just go to the website, and download the one for your target platform, unzip it, and put chrome driver executable in your PATH.
