Advantages Of Selenium Testing

Many major online enterprises including Facebook and Google use Selenium for testing their web interfaces. It is not only free, but it is also open source. Once it is set up, it provides an effective way to generate test scripts, authenticate functionality and reuse the scripts in automated test frameworks.
Here is a look at some of the advantages of selenium testing:

  1. Selenium is an Open Source Software

Selenium has no upfront cost. It is freely downloaded and its support is also free.

  1. Selenium supports various Browsers

Selenium tests are perfectly capable of running under multiple browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, IE, Opera, Safari, etc.

  1. Selenium supports various programming languages to write programs

Although Selenium has its own script language, it does not limit you to writing script in that language since it can work with C#, Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python and many others languages.

  1. Save and rerun

Selenium scripts can be saved and re-run at any given time. Selenium tests can be generated manually through the use of web development tools such as Firebug as well.

  1. Perfect integration

Selenium does not limit your choice of reporting tools, build systems, or any other aspect of their testing framework. It integrates well with common tools such as SauceLabs, Hudson, QMetry, Selenium-Grid and many others.

  1. Web application support

It also works with web applications that implement part of their functionality within the browser using JavaScript and AJAX technologies.

  1. Selenium uses less hardware resources

When compared to Vendor Tools like UFT, RFT, SilkTest etc., Selenium requires less hardware resources.
