Selenium HQ Review

It provides us simple objects recognition and multi-language support.


What is most valuable?

  • Simple objects recognition
  • It's easy to use
  • Multi-language support
  • Open source with good support
  • A lot of information and help online

What needs improvement?

Selenium IDE needs to be improved not like just an record / play back tool, but as effective web elements spy. TestNG has more support, and also has ntegration with Appium and Jmeter which Selenium misses.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for 10 years, since 2005.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Throughout the last five years, I have not had any difficulty to install or set-up Webdriver.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is an open source, so some issues are always pop[ing up , but compared to other open source automation tools web driver is much much better.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It covers all regression testing with 20,000 test cases run during 24 hours and easy maintenance.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer support is very good for a non-commercial tool.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Silk Test and Win Runner previously. Borland SilkTest is an excellent tool, but it costs.

How was the initial setup?

 It very straight forward and easy. Of course it’s required basic programming skills.

What about the implementation team?

We have in house automation framework and it works great with continuous integration. I do not see reasons to pay for third party services.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's a free tool.

What other advice do I have?

Just use web driver and enjoy.
