Normally I work with Chrome a lot. But there are other browsers. Do those browsers work with Selenium too?

Yes.

Each of the major browser vendors have provided a driver (similar to chromedriver) that allows Selenium to work with their respective browser.

Firefox

Here is information on geckodriver. https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/testing/geckodriver/#for-users

And here is where you can download it: https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/releases

IE

Sadly this is more complex than it needs to be. It is heavily tied to your Selenium version so you will need to pick the driver based on that.

See here for the download: https://selenium-release.storage.googleapis.com/index.html

Safari

This one is easier than I thought as long as you are on a new Safari. You probably already have it! If you are on El Capitan or higher... just look here on disk /usr/bin/safaridriver.

Opera

See the releases on this page for the download: https://github.com/operasoftware/operachromiumdriver
