Well worth it, but running selenium tests against IE using DOM
accessors (div[2]/table[2]/tr[1]/td[2]) can be painfully slow. CSS
accessors are recommended for reasonable speed.

If you need to test file upload/downloads, then a daemon based on
Win32::GuiTest is handy to type filenames into browser file dialogs
(can't be done from javascript). I've attached one we use in our
vmware windows selenium snapshot.

Good to know that there's an option for IE + Sel + file uploads. On the
firefox front, it is possible if you get selenium to launch FF right
(google for the particular invocation.) Then you just put a filename in the
box like its a text input, and FF will submit the file for you - all via
