still alive and useful - Selenium IDE

There was time, when I found out about Selenium IDE, simple add-on for Firefox and used it for a while. Had issues with long tests, questions splitting workflow into some pieces, manage page loads, introduce sleeps..  Cool thing for manual tester.  Then webdriver was introduced, IDE was considered a bad thing in my group :)

Starting working in new project and still having only few screens with mocked data for a few weeks. That means re-clicking every button for regression, or giving health-check clicks that both environments are still ok  or  are again ok to use. To set up custom project with web-driver seemed too many efforts - and the selenium is so cool again! Half an hour of work (ok, maybe an hour) and clicking buttons for me in  slow run mode :)
