Automated testing for web apps has been around for well over a decade. For much of that time, Selenium has reigned supreme as the go-to testing framework for virtually any type of testing need that involves a browser-based app. But as the world of test automation continues to evolve, newer tools have emerged. Chief among them is Cypress, a testing framework that is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to Selenium. Is Selenium or Cypress a better choice for your automated testing needs?

Spending via smartphones is going up. According to Forbes, smartphones accounted for 46.5% of all holiday sales on Thanksgiving Day 2020, and 40% of sales on Black Friday. This means close to half of all purchases were made not only online, but on a smartphone—which makes the mobile shopping experience all the more critical. Customers expect their transactions and experiences to go off without a hitch. And if that doesn’t happen?

In recent years, there’s been a shift towards broader adoption of JavaScript test automation frameworks. Today our customers are using Cypress, TestCafe, Puppeteer, and most recently, Playwright. Plus, they are often using these alongside existing Selenium and mobile test automation frameworks. The options for testing have increased, and depending on your unique testing needs, you may be adopting one or many solutions in your organization.

We’ve covered a lot of ground in the past few blog posts, including how to contribute to the project, and some details of what you can expect as a Selenium user. But there’s more to Selenium than just the APIs you use to write your tests, and one of the big features we’ve not covered yet is the refreshed Selenium Grid: a mechanism that allows you to distribute your tests across a fleet of machines.

Like most other companies (essential workers notwithstanding), we were forced to shift to an all-remote workforce, meaning many Saucers found themselves working from home for the first time. This presented challenges, of course—some of us simultaneously became homeschool teachers, we lost the ability to have quick hallway conversations, and we just plain missed seeing our coworkers—but in the end, we rallied together and embraced the new normal (or should we say the Zoom normal?).

Mobile testing is complex. You need to test your apps across multiple devices in different environments, and account for the varied conditions experienced by real users in the field. This presents a big challenge for the mobile development and QA teams. Adding to that, being remote, by definition, makes it hard for developers to understand what happened on a mobile device before an app crashed or when things didn’t work as expected. Further, the increasingly quality-sensitive users make it imperative for the modern mobile development and testing teams to deliver a flawless mobile experience with every release.

Software development can be a real grind, but one thing that makes it more bearable is the joy of a passing build. Not only is that green bar important when you're iterating on a feature, but it's normally a vital part of determining whether or not your software can be released. Getting to a green build as quickly as possible allows you to experience that joy of a passing build more frequently, and allows you to verify that the next release is good more quickly than your competitors. It's a vital building block as we move towards Continuous Deployment.

In this white paper, we will explore how analytics and insights can bring a level of control and visibility by presenting test data in a meaningful and actionable way. We are in the age of continuous testing. Using automation at scale, teams are testing more often throughout the software development lifecycle. But as testing volume grows, how do you know its impact on your ability to deliver quality software faster? Do you know where automation adds value, and where it might be creating risk? How do you best optimize your testing efforts to ensure the maximum return on investment?
