WebDriver is a java based libraries to write automation tests for web applications.
One thing is obvious immediately is ‘speed’, webdriver tests run much faster then selenium, reason explained above.
Works on proxy Works natively with Browser
Supports Major browsers Supports IE, Firefox , HtmlUunit and Iphone
API is quiet complex Simple API

to write tests
- Supports HtmlUnit driver to run tests faster
Webdriver is going to become Selenium 2.0 eventually. I personally think, webdriver is next big thing in web functional testing after selenium.
