Windmill is an open source web testing framework intended for complete  
automation of user interface testing in all browsers across all  
Operating Systems, originally written for testing the Chandler Server  
WebUI. Windmill is written in Python and Javascript and has strong test  
debugging and authoring features. It implements cross browser testing,  
in-browser recording and playback, and functionality for fast accurate  
debugging and test environment integration.

Our talk will focus on the architecture, general usage, and features  
that set it apart from other similar tools and is based on the our  
presentation at OSCON 2007. We'll cover what was in the OSCON  
presentation, but more quickly so we can dive in to the python related  
features. We will explain the workflow between the python and  
javascript ends and illustrate how some of the design choices helped us  
create a more complete and dynamic architecture.
