You Think Selenium is Free?

In today’s freemium and open source world, many think the cliché “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” no longer applies. But is this true?

By offering a complete 20-page comparison between the Selenium open-source solution and Test Studio, the Telerik robust test automation tool, we’d like to give you some food for thought about the hard and soft costs associated with each tool that includes:

  • Set up and configuration
  • Learning
  • Ease of test creation and execution
  • Possibility for test customization and extension
  • Effort to maintain
  • Project scalability

Even if you are a strong open source believer, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of the features each tool offers and can make a more educated decision about which is the best product for your specific scenario and goals.

Don't just take our word for it

Compared to Selenium Test Studio gives you a much broader set of tools, one of the greatest benefits is the cross browser support and the ease with which you can change tests. The support for locating elements on a page is way better than in Selenium. The way you can insert coded steps makes the tool extremely flexible. The principles behind Test Studio are the best I’ve seen by far.

Test maintenance typically added up to 75-80% of our overall testing costs when we were using Selenium; just a couple of months after we moved to Test Studio our testers were able to spend less than 20% of their time on maintenance. This was a huge cost saver for us.”
