"Great Automation Tool"

What do you like best?

Selenium Web Driver is a powerful tool to do web based automation. It has seamless integration with different test management tools like ALM, etc.. It can also be used along with Appium for mobile and tablet automation for different platforms like android and ios.

What do you dislike?

Unable to automate Non Web based Apps. This is the only downside. Otherwise, this is pretty powerful tool for a small scale to enterprise level automation

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely you should use Webdriver if you are testing web applications. Much robust and stable with multiple integrations to 3rd party tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saves lot of Manual hours and efforts by running automation scripts on a daily basis for the smoke and regression tests.

"Focus on testing, not on coding "

What do you like best?

I love its simplicity and the surrounding ecosystem of libraries, which simplifies the development tasks

What do you dislike?

Nothing, that's my preferred choice for writing acceptance tests

Recommendations to others considering the product

go for it, drop Java and C#, you surely won't regret it. It will be very easy to move from these two languages to python.Using python, you can focus more on testing rather than being concerned about what type your functions should take and return

Speed wise, they are pretty much the same, the only difference is milliseconds

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using selenium with python bindings professionally on a daily basis for the past five years and I am amazed its simplicity of use. It is definitely my favourite programming language for web testing, letting you focus more on testing itself rather than on coding, which is straightforward, very similar to a pseudo language and easy to teach to people with little or no experience in programming

What Python Package solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"First unit-testing software I used for a web page"

What do you like best?

The possibilities. Even hovers. You can do virtually everything with Selenium on python. I even used to connect to +1.000 routers which had no API and had to do something to every router. It was a real pleasure to work with such strong software. Even the things that seem impossible to do, they are easily done in Selenium.

What do you dislike?

Maybe I would say the difficulty to find the right thing to do when scraping/testing a website. The possibilities are too wide that sometimes you find yourself more searching than writing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can also use the R package for selenium

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The last time I used it was for the project we had. We had a massive hacking attack and we had to change the password for +1000 routers at their homes. So we used selenium, so instead of weeks, we finished the work in 1 or 2 days.

"Selenium is great!!"

What do you like best?

There are endless possibilities with Selenium. I ran across Selenium while I was working on an assignment that should have taken weeks but with Selenium I finished it in two days! Now I use Selenium for many other projects. It has saved a lot of time for many of our projects.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to access external web applications but it is not impossible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you run into a problem, there most likely is an answer. Use the internet to look up your questions because it is quite useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had to retrieve images from a website with about a hundred thousand images and instead of doing it manually, we ran the Selenium software and it saved our time by locally downloading these images to our computer!

"The pros and cons of python selenium"

What do you like best?

Substantially more productive because of dynamic typing

Python data structures are more flexible

It takes less time to run the script and complete the execution

Python already have a xUnit framework in the standard library

It is easy for coding and also easily readable>So there is less training cost.

Maintaining test scripts with Python is easy.

What do you dislike?

Inability to access elements external to the web application

Lack of native support to generate test/bug reports

Selenium does not support a native QT app

We have subsequently shifted to Selenium with Java

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I run regression test suite for new releases and report the bugs found.This gives testers in our team including me time to focus on testing new features and try out edge test cases.We can focus on UI/UX and also perform exploratory testing.

When there is an urgent release planned we can run the sanity test suite to make sure the basic functionalities in our app are working fine.

"I use this software at my work"

What do you like best?

I like this software because I only know python language and I can use that in this software. It is easy to install and use. The icons display is good. The guide to use the software is easy to understand. It going s very simple software very handy for use in automation

What do you dislike?

The guide included is very long . Some of the components are not used and are there which makes it little difficult for the person who is beginner to work with. It only works for python language if you want to use other language you cannot use this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits I have realized is that it has some already written test cases which we use frequently in our work . These are long and by using this software you don’t have to write them.
