Introduction
============

:Author: David Burns

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

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

See here_ for more information.
