What are the new features in Selenium 3.0

on Tue Dec 19, 2017 8:21 pm
The major change in Selenium 3.0 is we’re removing the original Selenium Core implementation and replacing it with one backed by WebDriver. This will affect all users of the Selenium RC APIs.


Please speed read the blog to get an idea about new features in Selenium 3.0:

Selenium Core is gone

With the release of Selenium 3.0, there is no selenium core. Selenium 2 supported selenium core for backward compatibility. There is no selenium core in version 3.0. Selenium official bog states that
Over time, the needs of modern web testing have grown ever more complicated and sophisticated, and Selenium Core is now less capable of meeting these needs than it was before.
This means that if you or your company is using Selenium core, you need to migrate your code.

Selenium 3.0 was developed in this year with the new features. It is a combination of Selenium 2.0 – Selenium 1.0, which means it supports Selenium 2.0 features but doesn’t have support for Selenium 1.0 i.e. Selenium Core.

Selenium 3.0 removed Selenium Core but supports Selenium RC indirectly through back-end Webdriver.

More than 9+ versions of IE are supported in selenium 3.0.

Now Selenium 3.0 has became a W3C (World wide Web consortium) standard.

@page { margin: 2cm } h2.cjk { font-family: "Noto Sans CJK SC Regular" } h2.ctl { font-family: "Lohit Devanagari" } p { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 120% }
Minimum Java version required is 1.8+

  • Firefox is fully supported at version 47.0.1 or earlier. Gecko driver provides support
    for later versions of Firefox. Firefox 47.0.1 and before would not need GeckoDriver
  • Selenium project will not actively support the WebDriver API.
  • The Selenium RC APIs are only available via the legacy-rc package.
  • Support Firefox browser via Mozilla’s gecko driver.
  • Selenium 3.0 does not have HeadLess Driver (HtmlWebDriver)
  • Official support for IE browser requires 9 or above version.
  • No need to maximize the browser using driver.manage().window().maximize(); By default it will maximize the window.


  • Apple has come up with its own SafariDriver to run your tests in Safari on Mac


  • Selenium RC core library won’t be supported.
  • Selenium WebDriver has become the W3C Standard. The W3C standard will encourage compatibility across different software implementations of WebDriver API.
  • All WebDrivers are moved out of selenium and vendors will be responsible for owning the drivers for maintenance, which will be the relief for maintenance team or open source team to get better implementation.

Issues found in Selenium 3.0


  • Unsupported Marionette protocol version 2, required 3 when our Firefox is 64 bit.
  • driver.close() is not working
