Watir-Webdriver is the future of Watir. You get the best of both worlds: First you get the great Watir API that is fully object oriented and has an object model that parallels the browser DOM; Secondly you get the Webdriver backend which provides fantastic cross browser support.

Most Ruby users will prefer the Watir API to selenium as it feels more natural and allows you to do things like easily work with collections of objects using code along these lines:

browser.div(:id => 'SearchResults').links.each do |link| #whatever you need to do with a link object such as check the HREF end
