To add a node click to Create Node button. A little options window appears where we can choose the browser, the session and the instances number.
After we added a node we can add other nodes if we want. If we click to the created node, we can see the node details.

The summary about this tool that it is a very useful tool if we doesn’t want to change the browser and selenium drivers. The problem is that the drivers are given with the tool and we can’t change them to a specific version.
