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.
I've been using it for 10 years, since 2005.
Throughout the last five years, I have not had any difficulty to install or set-up Webdriver.
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.
It covers all regression testing with 20,000 test cases run during 24 hours and easy maintenance.
Customer support is very good for a non-commercial tool.
I used Silk Test and Win Runner previously. Borland SilkTest is an excellent tool, but it costs.
It very straight forward and easy. Of course it’s required basic programming skills.
We have in house automation framework and it works great with continuous integration. I do not see reasons to pay for third party services.
It's a free tool.
Just use web driver and enjoy.
