Selenium IDE3 Using If and Variables

Selenium IDE3 is continually evolving and has become my new tool-of-choice for testing web apps from the user experience perspective. Some of the features of the older Selenium IDE, such as rollups, are not supported. This has required some time to learn how to recreate test scripts in the new IDE.

Vue + Vuetify is my new go-to tool for plugins and themes.   I am happier with my choice knowing that was created and is supported by small independent developers.
