I went to a selenium get together Monday and think we have some great  
opportunities for improving and speeding up our testsuite.

The bits I think would be of most benefit, from my perspective as a  
non-test-engineer, are:

selenium grid.  This lets you run basically any number of selenium  
tests in parallel against a single server.  For instance we can run  
all the console tests in parallel.
selenium IDE.  This lets you record your actions on a web site as a  
test.  You can also edit the results for e.g. better independence of  
the xpath expressions on the specific html

There's another tool that was discussed that lets you abstract the  
xpath expressions but I can't remember the name or find documentation  
about it.  If our pages' formatting don't jump around too much it  
might not be incredibly useful for us.
