Most vendor tools now allow you to integrate with Selenium with enhanced functionality to make your automation efforts easier.All tool vendors will have to support Selenium because it’ll no longer be just an open- source tool; it’s actually going to be a W3C standard that tool vendors will have to support.Selenium and Vendor tools need to work together.
