It’s Open Source…And Free.
Selenium is an Open Source automation framework built for web-browser testing by some of the brightest developers tired of scripting with expensive legacy automation tools not truly built for the web. Because of this, Selenium’s community is vibrant, growing and is seen as one of the real strength’s of the tool. It has become the most reliable web automation tool because of the ease of generating test scripts to validate functionality. Selenium also works with testing frameworks like WebDriver.IO, Nightwatch.js, and countless others. Oh, and it’s free, with no upfront costs.
One Script for True Cross Browser Testing
With only one script Selenium can test Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera, and Internet Explorer on almost any platform available: Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. Customers are using an increasing amount of devices, as they become cheaper and more powerful. Keep up and improve your test coverage with just one script.
