How Selenium got its Name?
Jason Huggins, the creator of Selenium’s first product ‘Selenium Core’ has coined this Selenium name first.
One day, Jason Huggins made a joke in a mail on competitor company name – Mercury Interactive.
Mercury Interactive was later acquired by HP company and their product got renamed to QTP followed by UFT.
Here is the joke in the mail – “Mercury poisoning can be cured by taking Selenium Supplement“.
The others who received this email, decided to name it as Selenium.
This is how Selenium got its name 🙂
