Which Web Testing Tool Should I Use?

There are several great tools and frameworks for automating browser-based web UI testing these days. This article talks about big three browser automation tools right now are Selenium, Cypress, and Playwright and which one to choose on which scenario.


When it comes to software integration testing, there are several techniques for simulating the behavior of external dependencies or components that your system interacts with. Two of the most common techniques are stubs and mocks, which are used to create controlled environments for testing. However, there's another technique called fakes that is sometimes used interchangeably with stubs and mocks, but actually serves a different purpose……………..

In software testing, test execution time is a critical factor that can impact the overall efficiency and effectiveness of your testing process. Longer test execution times can lead to delays in detecting and fixing defects, increase the risk of regression issues, and slow down the delivery of new features and releases. Therefore, it's essential to understand why test execution time is important and how to optimize it for faster and more reliable testing……………..

With the increasing use of APIs in modern software development, API security has become a critical concern for organizations of all sizes. APIs can expose sensitive data and functionality to external parties, making them a prime target for cyber attacks and data breaches. Therefore, it's essential to implement best practices for API security to protect your systems and data from unauthorized access and exploitation……………….

Fuzzing, also known as fuzz testing, is a powerful software testing technique that involves generating and injecting unexpected inputs into a program or system to identify defects and vulnerabilities. Fuzzing can help you uncover hard-to-find bugs and security flaws that might be missed by other testing methods, and is widely used in industries such as software development, cybersecurity, and quality assurance…………………..
