geckodriver
===========

Proxy for using W3C [WebDriver] compatible clients to interact with
Gecko-based browsers.

This program provides the HTTP API described by the [WebDriver protocol]
to communicate with Gecko browsers, such as Firefox.  It translates calls
into the [Firefox remote protocol] by acting as a proxy between the local-
and remote ends.
