This blog will teach you how to create Selenium automation tests faster using Selenium Builder.

After my research, I found out there are multiple recorders available to create selenium scripts faster. These recorders will provide you a script with absolute the x-paths and are ineffective. I would suggest replacing those x-paths with relative x-paths of your own.

Let’s see how we can use Selenium Builder:

Selenium Builder comes as Firefox plugin only with older versions of Firefox (Not compatible with Firefox quantum and higher versions)


  1. Selenium Builder allows you to record the script.

2. Edit recorded scripts.

3. Play back Selenium 2 recorded tests from within Firefox.

4. You can save the tests as JSON files or export them to a wide range of language bindings.

Adding as Firefox Plugin:

Search for Selenium Builder and Click Add to Firefox button.

Adding Verification:

Once finished recording click Stop recording Button.

Exporting recorded test:
