Pros

Selenium

  • The efficiency in testing is beneficial with Selenium because without the questioning the potential usefulness of software, we wouldn't really be able to confirm that certain web applications will perform the way we want them to.
  • Quality Assurance has worked better with Selenium since this program helps eliminate manual QA testing, which itself could lead to exponential error, and cost.
  • A strength of Selenium is also the array of tools as well as cross-platform capability. The remotely controlled server acts as a device platform for JavaScript, PHP, Perl, and Ruby.

Cons

Selenium

  • Unfortunately, there's no way to run tests with playback on a single monitor. For those who simply do not have additional screens on-hand, Selenium is impossible to use. Those who do have multiple monitors may choose to use 1 monitor for any specified reason, therefore making Selenium a non-option.
  • As a program designed to function within Firefox, users tend to experience technical issues with opposing browsers. Although Selenium has been improved over the years, it still has not mastered cross-browser compatibility.

We love this product mainly because of its high customization abilities and the ease of use. Moreover, its free and can be learned easily through online communities and videos. The tests are more consistent and reliable as compared to Manual tests. It has enabled us to test a large number of features all in one go, which would have impossible through manual tests. The reports generated at the end of the tests are really helpful for the QA and the development teams to get a fair view of the application.

Usability

Selenium

Selenium 8.7
Based on 6 answers
As I mentioned earlier, the reason I use Selenium is because there is a fairly widespread community of users, and user support services are at a good level. because the application is open source, it works on many platforms (Windows, Linux, IOS) without any problems. In addition, it gives us a lot of options for writing functional tests. For errors that we receive through the application, we can easily find the reasons for errors in the forums.

Selenium does not have technical support available easily. You have to go through forums to get the information you need. However, there are excellent forums out there that make it easy to troubleshoot. The open-source flexibility makes it difficult to have dedicated support.

We did everything we needed to use it.Now we can execute our tests on different operational systems and browsers running few tests simultaneously.We also implemented Appium framework to execute our tests on mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets.We use SauceLabs for our test execution and Jenkins for continuous integration.

Alternatives Considered

Selenium

HQ UFT, it is one of the best and has more abilities but it is too much expensive while Selenium is free.SmartBear TestComplete, same reason as UFT.Watir, it is a Selenium-like open source project but has less features and limited documentation.

Return on Investment

Selenium

  • There hasn’t been a downside to using it yet other than we’ve got to update the programs we create for each change.
  • This has saved us hundreds of hours of manpower by allowing our automation engineer to rapid fire tests.
  • We are able to screenshot and save entire sites before and after launch with a program the automation engineer created
  • We can compare large volumes of data against data in excel docs with a program created using Selenium
