Overall Satisfaction with Selenium

We're using Selenium on most of our applications which are Web UI based. It's a great tool as it's open source and supports multi browsers including headless browsers. We use Selenium along with SauceLabs to run tests on cross browser/cross os systems.
  • For any web based UI automation, Selenium is the best tool out there to automate your tests.
  • It supports multiple coding languages like Java, Python, Ruby, C# etc.. to choose from.
  • There is a huge community of users and can get many answers on StackOverFlow.
  • It has lot of other plugins to make your tests even more efficient.
  • Mocking backend api calls can be implemented like cypress.
  • Visual validation on UI is a challenge using Selenium and can get better.
  • Automating Captchas, vidio/audio files can be improved.
  • Open source Web UI automation tool with support of multiple browsers and multiple coding languages gives great flexibility.
  • Can be easily used for implementing parallel execution of tests.
  • CICD integration with Jenkins Pipeline.
  • ROI has positively improved massively as it's open source tool.
  • Flexibility on choosing programming language.
  • No negative impact.
Selenium is way better than those two as it's free and has great community support.
