This module sends commands directly to the Server using simple HTTP

The Selenium Server is available here:
or on CPAN in the Alien-SeleniumRC package:
To install:
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install
Once installed, your test script will look something like this:
use strict;
use warnings;
use Test::More tests => 4;
use Test::WWW::Selenium;
my $sel = Test::WWW::Selenium->new( host => "localhost", # where selenium-server is running
browser => "*firefox", # browser to server should launch
browser_url => "");
$sel->title_is('Super Cool Mega Site!');
$sel->text_is('todays_awesomeness', '100');
$sel->text_like('status', qr/returned 42 results/);
