Browser Testing with Selenium

I recently made first steps with the Firefox Selenium extention (actually selenium is already built into firefox, so It's just the menu).
I found, that, though buggy, it is pretty easy to "record" End2End Tests.

The point beeing "easy" makes me wonder, if this can be a viable alternative or prominent completion to existing testing approaches, which are far less convenient to construct.

So I would be interested in an opinion on how far Selenium could replace the existing approaches and if it is a viable suggestion for effectively increasing e2e test coverage and foster explorative testing?

Secondly, I would like to ask if the OCA is has already formed an opinion about Selenium or if she is filling to form one?
