Overall Satisfaction with Selenium

Test scripts for our customers are being executed in the backend which uses Selenium as a core framework.

Pros

  • Selenium has wide range of language bindings.
  • As an open source framework, it has fewer bugs in its source code.
  • A lot of people are using Selenium, you can find answers to almost every question on the internet.

Cons

  • Selenium 4 will finally have the opportunity to interact with the browser itself instead of with a driver.
  • Cross-browser testing is a bit hard with Selenium as different browsers sometimes need different codes. That needs to be streamlined.
  • Selenium is free to use.
Selenium should be used if you want to automate your web browser, but as a web scrapper, it is useful.
