We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The primary benefit is its cost and the ability to use the cloud.Our platform runs into several thousand screens and a few thousand test cases, something which would typically take months to test manually. As of today, the entire process takes a little over two days to run.Selenium has helped to complete tests in less time, which would not be possible relying on manual testing only.It is programming language agnostic, you can write tests in most currently used languages.It has helped to complete tests in less time, which would not be possible relying on manual testing only.It supports most of the mainstream browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, IE and etc.Selenium web driver - Java.Language support - since it supports Java and other programming languages it is easy to integrate with other systems.

Cons
It does require a programming skill set. I would like the product not to require a heavy programming skill set and be more user-friendly for someone without a programming background.In the beginning, we had issues with several test cases failing during regression. Over a period of time, we built our own framework around Selenium which helped us overcome of these issues.Improvement in Selenium's ability to identify and wait for the page/element to load would be a big plus. This would ensure that our failed test cases will drop by 60%.It would be very great if Selenium would provide some framework examples so newcomers could get started more quickly.​To simplify the development process, everyone needs to do a Selenium Framework to acquire the web application functions and features from Selenium methods.It is not easy to make IE plus Selenium work good as other browsers. Firefox and Chrome are the best ones to work with Selenium.Handling frames and windows needs to be improved.There is no good tool to find the Xpath. They should provide a good tool to find Xpath for dynamic elements and integrate API (REST/ SOAP) testing support.

I would like to see an improvement in the User Interface.Classes are not as object-oriented as I would like, but I am a programmer and not QA so I expect a lot.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This product is open source and free. That was a huge deciding factor for us getting into it.It is free.Since it is an open source. It is free to use. However my company see it as the future of load testing.It's open-source, so there's no need to pay for a license.There is no pricing cost. License is Apache License 2.0.
