Python bindings for Selenium

Project description

============
Introduction
============
:Author: Miki Tebeka <miki@saucelabs.com>

Selenium Python Client Driver is a Python language binding for Selenium Remote
Control (version 1.0 and 2.0).

Currently only the remote protocol for Selenium 2.0 is supported, as are the
Selenium 1.0 bindings. As work will progresses we'll add more "native" drivers.

See here_ for more information.

elem.send_keys("selenium\n")
