Has the robot framework support for IExplorer or only for Firefox and Chrome? (If yes, how to configure it?)

From: SeleniumLibrary documentation.

Possible values for browser are all the values supported by Selenium and some aliases that are defined for convenience. The table below lists the aliases for most common supported browsers.

  • firefox FireFox
  • ff FireFox
  • ie Internet Explorer
  • internetexplorer Internet Explorer
  • safari Safari
  • googlechrome Google Chrome
  • opera Opera

If you use Selenium2Library, which is much better than SeleniumLibrary so possible values for browser are as follows:

  • firefox | FireFox
  • ff | FireFox
  • internetexplorer | Internet Explorer
  • ie | Internet Explorer
  • googlechrome | Google Chrome
  • gc | Google Chrome
  • chrome | Google Chrome
  • opera | Opera
  • phantomjs | PhantomJS
  • htmlunit | HTMLUnit
  • htmlunitwithjs | HTMLUnit with Javascipt support
