We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features of Selenium HQ are it is open-source, has a good interface, and integrates well."
"The most valuable feature is the Selenium grid, which allows us to run tests in parallel."
"I like its simplicity."
"What I like the most about this product is that it gives us a lot of freedom to code anything, there is no restriction on the type of function you can do."
"For me, the most valuable feature of Selenium lies in its ability to help us find elements quickly. Apart from that, the driver interface is really useful, too. When we implement the Selenium driver interface, we can easily navigate through all of the pages and sections of an app, including performing things like clicking, putting through SendKeys, scrolling down, tagging, and all the other actions we need to test for in an application."
"Ability to integrate with every other tool."
"Data parametrization and parallelization are the most important features in any automation tool."
"Its biggest advantage is that it is very customizable."
"The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to."
"Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good."
"The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad."
"The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good."
"The stability is okay."
"The licensing cost is very less for NeoLoad. It is user-friendly and easy to understand because they have created so many useful functionalities. When I started working with this tool, we just had to do the initial assessment about whether this tool will be able to support our daily work or not. I could easily understand it. I didn't have to search Google or watch YouTube videos. In just 15 to 20 minutes, I was able to understand the tool."
"It is not a licensed tool. The problem with that is that it won't be able to support Windows desktop applications. There is no support for Windows desktop applications. They can do something about it. Its user interface can also be improved, which is not great compared to the other latest tools. Anybody who has been working on functional testing or manual testing cannot directly work on Selenium HQ without learning programming skills, which is a disadvantage."
"One drawback to Selenium is that there is nothing like an object repository, such as that found in QTP, especially considering continuous integration practices that have become common nowadays."
"The login could be improved, to obviate the need for relying on another one for integration with Selenium HQ"
"There should be standardized frameworks to build automation."
"The latest versions are often unstable."
"Selenium HQ could have better interaction with SAP products."
"It would be very helpful to be able to write scripts in a GUI, rather than depend so heavily on the command line."
"Selenium uses a layer-based approach that is somewhat slower than Eggplant when it comes to executing code."
"LoadRunner offers a full protocol, whereas, with this product, only a few of the protocols are supported - not all."
"Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing."
"LoadRunner supports multiple protocols, whereas NeoLoad supports only three protocols. With NeoLoad, we can go for the SAP technology, web-based HTTP, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). If I have to simulate .NET application-based traffic, I won't be able to do that. So, protocol support is a limitation for NeoLoad. It should support more protocols."
"Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols."
"Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue."
"I would like to see support for auto-correlations."
"This is an open-source product so there is no cost other than manpower."
"Selenium is free software so we do not pay licensing costs."
"We are satisfied with the pricing."
"Selenium HQ is open source and our use of it in our company is provided for free."
"It's an open-source tool that you can work with at any time without any cost."
"Selenium is a free tool."
"Selenium is open-source."
"It is all free."
"Licensing for NeoLoad is subscription-based."
"Its licensing cost is very less."
