More RadView WebLOAD Pros →

"The solution is very easy to implement.""The most valuable features are ExpectedConditions, actions, assertions, verifications, flexible rates, and third-party integrations.""We can run multiple projects at the same time and we can design both types of framework, including data-driven or hybrid. We have got a lot of flexibility here.""The testing solution produces the best web applications.""The most valuable features of Selenium HQ are it is open-source, has a good interface, and integrates well.""The grids, as well as the selectors, are the most valuable features.""The stability of the solution has been good, it is reliable we have not had any bugs.""The solution is very easy to use. Once you learn how to do things, it becomes very intuitive and simple."

More Selenium HQ Pros →

"The reporting side of things is really complicated. It's difficult to get out exactly what you're looking for, there are almost too many options.""Technical support is slow and wastes a lot of time, so it needs to be improved."

More RadView WebLOAD Cons →

"The installation could be simplified, it is a bit difficult to install.""Selenium is good when the team is really technical because Selenium does less built-in methods. If it came with more built-in and pre-built methods it would be even easier for less technical people to work with it. That's where I think the improvement can be.""Selenium uses a layer-based approach that is somewhat slower than Eggplant when it comes to executing code.""Whenever an object is changed or something is changed in the UI, then we have to refactor the code.""There should be standardized frameworks to build automation.""It would be better to have a simplified way to locate and identify web elements.""The latest versions are often unstable.""It would be better if it accommodated non-techy end-users. I think it's still a product for developers. That's why it's not common for end-users, and especially for RPA activities or tasks. It's hard to automate tasks for end-users. If it will be easier, more user-friendly, and so on, perhaps it can be more interesting for this kind of user."
