Quick start for running Selenium WebDriver from Selenium IDE.
- Install standalone Selenium server (instructions)
- Install Chrome driver (downloads, instructions)
- Set Playback settings in Selenium IDE, through Options dialog. Enable WebDriver Playback, and set the browser. I use “chrome” with the above driver.
After that, check that http://localhost:4444/wd/hub is accessible and run the tests.
In addition, https://addons.mozilla.org/ contains some useful Selenium IDE plugins.
