I am trying to find a full list of Selenium RC browser launchers. So far I've not been able to find any documentation that lists them all. I've gathered the following ones from various sources.

  • *iexplore - Launches IE
  • *firefox - Launches Firefox
  • *safari - Launches Safari
  • *opera - Launches Opera
  • *googlechrome - Launches Google Chrome
  • *chrome - Launches special Firefox profile with elevated security privileges, to bypass Javascript security errors
  • *iehta - Launches IE with elevated security privileges
  • *piiexplore - Launches IE in proxy injection mode
  • *pifirefox - Launches Firefox in proxy injection mode
  • *custom - Launches your own custom browser executable

Are there any others lurking out there? Is there any source of documentation on how each one is used?

If you provide the wrong browser id and try to start a selenium session, like the one shown below:

selenium = new DefaultSelenium("localhost", server.getPort(), "*gf", "http://www.eviltester.com");

Then selenium 1.0.3 will report the following list: 

Supported browsers include:

firefox

mock

firefoxproxy

pifirefox

chrome

iexploreproxy

iexplore

firefox3

safariproxy

googlechrome

konqueror

firefox2

safari

piiexplore

firefoxchrome

opera

iehta

custom

This lists a few more than you have.
