Everything web-based should be testable. Even our highly dynamic content-providing web application works well. Hopefully, it will get a bigger user base in the future so that one can find even more support at StackOverflow or similar forums.

Alternatives Considered
Cypress.io Inc
Cypress.io is easy to start with and is independent of other automation tools. Unless we are looking for automating every edge case, Cypress.io can do it without using any plugins. Also, when a test fails, we can travel back to the state in which the test failed (aka time travel feature of Cypress.io), which makes debugging the failure or reporting the failure easy.

Cypress.io is an alternative end-to-end test framework that does NOT use Selenium. Since I've only evaluated this tool as a possible solution, my estimation of its performance against Protractor is incomplete. However, if you and your team are looking for automation solutions outside of the Selenium scope, then Cypress.io may be a good fit given the problems you're trying to solve.
