Overall Satisfaction with Selenium

We use Selenium IDE because it allows us to test web-based applications that we develop and then automate them, allowing us to check the same cases on the browser without entering them again and again. It is actively used by Business Intelligence and testing units.
  • It acts like a Normal user, performs and records operations accordingly.
  • Because Selenium is open source, it works on many platforms (Windows, Linux, IOS) without any problems.
  • It is more preferred than other testing tools thanks to its multi-language support and platform support. (UFT, QTP)
  • It has insufficient development for objects to be found. Objects with dynamic properties often fail.
  • It is only available as an add-on for Firefox and Chrome.
  • A lot of language support is available, making my job easier. (Java, ..NET, Python, Ruby, PHP,Perl)
  • It does not offer effective programming, so there may be times when I stay away [for] professional satisfaction.
The main reason I prefer Selenium is because it has a fairly common user community and because it 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.
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.
The Selenium app has a pretty fat community of users. For the problems we are experiencing, we are primarily receiving support from these communities. In addition, there is widespread service support. Instant support is given to the problems we experience when we need Online support. We and our team are happy to provide this support, especially before important deployment processes

Selenium is a “Browser Automation” tool, as defined on the website, that is, a tool that allows us to automatically create and operate certain testing steps of websites through our web browser. For example, when we want to test the correct and incorrect operation scenarios of the user registration page of our website, we can automate steps such as opening the user registration page with Selenium, filling in the input fields on the page, clicking on the button... So it makes it easier for us to do functional tests of our practice.
