    Hi all,

    I’m looking for some automated testing tools for my team. Any suggestion for web testing? With tight budget and limited technical skills, we cannot purchase premium tools like TestComplete or UFT 🙁

    It’s the best if you can review your current tools.

    Thank you in advance.


    Selenium seems to be the go-to solution for most web projects.


    check out accelQ. QA tool specifically made for continuous testing. it lets you abstract the whole application down to level of each element on page, this way automation test can be developed in parTallel to application code. Also automation is written in english and powered with smart reconciliation… so no more code updates as app changes and evolves. check it out, really powerful stuff


    For non-functional testing: IBM Rational Performance Tester, LoadCompleteTesting Anywhere

    For functional testing: Telerik StudioHP UFTTestComplete and Katalon Studio


    If you are still looking for the tools, this article will definitely help you, Lila : A Comparison of Automated Testing Tools

    Good luck! 🙂


    Thank you all for your support. I’ll definitely take a look at your suggestions soon. Looking forward to further discussion.



    Hi, you can also go through Qualitia it is a scriptless test automation tool leverages the power the power of Selenium, Appium and UFT. Also, it support mobile testing as well. http://www.qualitiasoft.com


    Hi Lila,

    I think Selenium is a very good option for testing web applications in your case. It is free so you don’t have to purchase licenses to use it. Regarding the technical side, you can easily find support on internet. Additionally, Selenium works with many languages (Java, C#, Python, Ruby etc.) so you can decide which language is better for your project.



    Hi Lila, My team is using Katalon Studio and it is really cool. You should try it out. You can also use Selenium as well. It is used widely and both of them are free.

    • Selenium / Python  : small custom scripts
    • Selenium / Selenide / Java – custom framework : implementation of web-related checking
    • SikuliX  / Python (Jython) : visual automation, my own custom implementation of Monkey testing concept
    • XCode UI testing / customized framework/ Objective-C : automation of checks for native iOS app
    • Selenium / Robot Framework with Selenium library: web testing on occasions, hadn’t implement big projects with that

    @alishahenderson Please avoid pasting your text from office documents into the content field.


    Text studio
    Best for me.


    Selenium is best tool for automated testing. but it is also depend on the requirements also. there are also other tools available.


    @lilathetester, I would like to suggest Katalon Studion for starting with automation. Also, recommend looking at this blog post of  “How To Do Automation Web Testing Using Katalon In 3 Easy Steps” at  https://huddle.eurostarsoftwaretesting.com/automation-web-testing



    I am using Serenity (Selenium and Rest-Assured) quite a lot on my projects. It gives you a nice documentation of your test results and I appreciate the usage of Selenium (UI) and Rest-Assured (API) combination.

    Try pcloudy.com, it is best tool for automation testing.


    Selenium: Popular testing framework for web apps. It includes a helpful record/playback tool and lets you write tests in a number of common programming languages.

    Sahi: Another option for automating and testing web apps.

    Ranorex: A GUI automation framework designed to test desktop, web and mobile apps.

    AutoIT: Used for general scripting and automating Windows GUI.

    Squish: A GUI test automation tool that is cross-platform and cross-technology. For use with apps based on Qt, Java SWT/RCP, Java Swing, MFC/.NET, Web/Ajax, iOS and more.

    TestComplete: Expansive automation solution that lets you create, manage and run tests for desktop, web or mobile client software.

    Telerik TestStudio: A versatile tool that can be used to test web, desktop and mobile apps. It can automate tests for a broad range of technologies, including: HTML5, AJAX, JavaScript, Silverlight, WPF, MVC, Ruby, PHP, iOS and Android.

    Appium: Test native, hybrid and mobile web apps with this versatile, open source test automation tool.

    Calabash: A cross-platform framework used for mobile app testing that supports Android/iOS hybrid and native apps. Calabash uses clear, easy-to-understand language syntax making it a great choice for non-technical teams looking to execute automated tests.

    Unified Functional Testing (UFT): Formerly known as Quick Test Professional, UFT is used for functional, regression and service testing. UFT helps record/automate actions on a web or client-based app and test them across different user accounts, data sets, browsers and Windows operating systems.


    I am not sure what kind of automation you are trying to do, what language you want to use and what type of applications you are trying to test like Desktop/Mobile web or Mobile Native Apps (iOS/Android). So here is a high level overview of the tools I have personally used and researched-


    It uses machine learning for the authoring, execution and maintenance of automated tests. It focuses on functional testing, end-to-end testing and UI testing. The more tests you run the more smarter the tool becomes to increase the stability of your test suites. It is not a completely code-less tool; you can use JavaScript and HTML to write complex programming logic (if needed) for your applications.


    It is Python based GUI automation tool. You can automate anything that has a GUI. It uses an image recognition algorithm to select elements based on images. You use Python to add code as and when you need to extend the functionality of the tool


    This allows to run tests on web and mobile apps. It is easy to use and has all the functionalities you may need for automation. But in terms of flexibility it may not be as robust as Testim.io


    Appvance uses AI to generate test results autonomously, and also data-driven regression end-to-end test cases based on actual production behavior. It has advanced validation capability without writing any scripts (validate results). It learns from each test run and makes tests smarter each time. It is a fully AI based system. Works for web based applications including new libraries like ReactJS, Polymer, Angular2, KendoUI, ShadowDOM etc.


    Functionize uses machine learning for functional testing. It is very similar to other tools in the market in terms of its capabilities


    This is an open source testing tool that focuses on BDD (Behavior Driven Development). It emphasizes writing requirements in plain english in the form of Given, When and Then statements. This is commonly referred to as “Gherkin” syntax. You then convert these GWT statements into code using Java, JavaScript, Ruby or Kotlin. This helps to enforce collaboration and bring more clarity to requirements.


    This is an open source tool and has been around for quite a while. It would require some knowledge of programming like Java/JavaScript and need to know good practices of automation like Page Object and Page Factory pattern.


    This framework was born as a result of the inabilities of Selenium to handle javascript frameworks such as Angular.js. It is an end to end testing framework to specifically test Angular and Angular JS applications. It has built in functions to identify different types of elements in these applications. One of the coolest feature of the framework is its support for parallel testing, where you can run several browser instances simultaneously.

    Although protractor has good features to do web automation it does have its limitations. It only supports JavaScript and automating Angular.js applications. It does not support mobile apps.

    Hope this helps




    I would like to take the support of a test automation tool and expect a good codeless tool. So, I checked a few tools and thought about ‘TestSigma. Have you used this tool before? Does it a good one to afford?

    Appreciate your responses.



    Its totally depend on what type of testing you are going to perform. According to a software product, you have to analyze and apply testing tools. There are a lot of tools to use in automation testing and each tool has its own specification. Some tools are listed below.

    1. Selenium

    2. Ranorex

    3. TestComplete

    4.QMetry Automation Studio


    Hey Guys,

    for testing web application I can totally recommend cypress.io to you! It’s a developer-friendly JavaScript Framework for the newest kind of Development Methods.

    We started with selenium and swapped a year ago to it. It’s powerfull and extremely easy to write tests for Applications like React. I guess the main argument for it is, that it runs in a browser. So you can easily mock Http Requests for shortcuts and it runs much faster. In addition, it will wait for every request and loading automatically.


    Kind regards




    I am a Test Automation lead and I use tools below tools in my company-

    Katalon Studio is my go to tool.

    It will interface with selenium driver, is a Java app so runs anywhere – good for C.I. environments. Integrates with Jira and Git, and has a ready made framework for data/test/customer driven tests. Free too. There is an enterprise edition also now for large business with licencing costs.


    Selenium would be my first option for a cost-effective Automated Web testing. iSAFE framework is a portable framework that provides the synergy of Selenium TestNG and other CI CD tools and acts as a Jump Start Kit for any web automation. Below are some of the key benefits of iSAFE

    Ability to work with multiple OS/ Browsers / Devices
    Target based & parallel execution using Selenium Grid
    Provides Support for API and DB Testing
    Higher Reusability & Lesser Effort on Script Maintenance
    Reduced Efforts on Technically Skilled Resources
    Facilitates Better Communication with the Stakeholders on the Status of Tests (Email/SMS Text Status/Voice calls to Stakeholders)
    Enriched Reports with Varied Analytics
