When to Use Selenium Grid

Selenium Grid provides the functionality of running Selenium tests in parallel with different or the same browsers. You should use Selenium Grid in either one or both of following situations: 


  • Run your tests against different browsers, operating systems, and machines all at the same time. This will verify that the application under test is fully compatible with a wide range of browser-OS combinations.
  • Save time in execution of your test suites. For example, if you setup Selenium Grid to run 5 tests at a time, this means that you are able to finish the whole suite around 5 times faster.
