Selenium - User Extensions

It is easy to extend Selenium IDE by adding customized actions, assertions, and locator-strategies. It is done with the help of JavaScript by adding methods to the Selenium object prototype. On startup, Selenium will automatically look through the methods on these prototypes, using name patterns to recognize which ones are actions, assertions, and locators.
