    both are good testing tools, Selenium is open for integration with other tools and frameworks to enhance its capability, but Testing teams need to have good background in programming. The Katalon Studio is integrating necessary frameworks and features for fast test cases execution and creation. It’s also good for testers with limited technical knowledge.

    Though Katalon Studio is beginner friendly I prefer the flexibility of a Page Object Model-based framework from Selenium WebDriver over Katalon studio.

    Selenium is an automation API available in various programming languages like Java, JS, Python, Ruby, C#. You need to download the library and create the automation framework of your choice. You should be strong enough in coding to solve the automation scenario-based problem.

    Katalon studio is a software tool, has been built with readily usable features. You just need to configure the software and use it for automation. Programming knowledge not required.

    Few more points I came across recently,

    • Katalon is only Groovy(Java) based
    • There is no flexibility to add custom keywords
    • In order to use it with different IDE’s,  code export from Katalon requires to export with Native Jar’s & libraries

    Edit: Now they support custom keywords, for more information please read the official documentation here

    @jhulax, thanks for pointing out. Updated my comment now, I should have checked. I am not using Katalon anymore.
