What needs improvement?

* Stability. * Documentation, the Java doc description for most of the API is almost empty. No example with no detail. * 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. * Java gets a lot of supports. Python as well. However, it seems not PHP. It is amazing, and Selenium can work with a lot of programming languages. *… more»

What is most valuable?

- Most importantly, it is an open source tool. - Parallel executions (same browser in parallel, different browser in parallel). - Remote executions using Node and Hub. - Integration with CI tools like Jenkins - Multi-platform support (for details have a look at… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Web-based application automation are mostly done using Selenium. It's the right automation tool as a replacement for manual regression testing that indispensably reduces the testing time due to its cross-browser, parallel, and remote executions.

What needs improvement?

It has extensive support for Chrome and Firefox, but more is needed for IE, Edge and Safari.

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

It's an open source tool.

What is most valuable?

* Flexibility * Scalability

How has it helped my organization?

The primary benefit is its cost and the ability to use the cloud. We use it with Sauce Labs. So, we have a large base of real devices and emulators, as well as breadth of coverage.

What needs improvement?

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.

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

This product is open source and free. That was a huge deciding factor for us getting into it.

What other advice do I have?

I don’t see it as a company spending money on anything. I like to keep up with the market because I built my career around test automation. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Ease of implementation * Ease of adaptability *… more»

What is most valuable?

WebDriver and Grid: Without these, we would have been nowhere so far. The shear size of team/software license required to accomplish this humongous task would have thrown us out of business.

How has it helped my organization?

Our platform runs into several thousand screens and a few thousand test cases, something which would typically take months to test manually. However, we have been using Selenium to automate our… more»

What needs improvement?

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%. Introduction of FluentWait has… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I have had experience with Rational tools in the past, but with DWA Commerce, we wanted to go the open source route.

What other advice do I have?

Just go for it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have had extensive experience in testing and have pretty much worked with most testing solutions. Therefore, we did not have to go in for a re-evaluation. Our choice was clear.

What is most valuable?

Compatibility with all major browsers; it has become the industry standard. It is programming language agnostic, you can write tests in most currently used languages.

How has it helped my organization?

Selenium has helped to complete tests in less time, which would not be possible relying on manual testing only.

What needs improvement?

* To simplify the development process, everyone needs to do a Selenium Framework to acquire the web application functions and features from Selenium methods. * It would be very great if Selenium would provide some framework examples so newcomers could get started more quickly.
