If it is possible to use selenium to construct a test harness that you
can just point to with a web browser, that sounds fine to me. If it
requires command-line invocation or downloading and installation of
packages, then I would like to avoid it. My experience with selenium
on O3D, in particular debugging why O3D wouldn't load from within
Selenium in IE, was not good. We don't need its complexity, at least
not for our current tests.

Philip Taylor's Canvas tests at
http://philip.html5.org/tests/canvas/suite/tests/ look nice.
