Why Selenium is so famous now a days?

Apr 19th 2019 at 12:07 AM

I think the reason of anything becoming prominent is governed by a set of characteristics and reasons. Selenium was developed 15 years ago, back in 2004 by Jason Hawkings at Thought Works. From being to perform tests in internal projects of the company to being the most widely used tool in Test Automation, Selenium, now as a portable Software testing framework for testing web applications, has definitely came a long way.

Test automation is surely time-saving, efficient and labour free process, but accuracy is what the industry is seeking. Being said, software testers are in huge demand by the Tech giants as well as small start-up companies in India as well as in the world. And so are the good Software training institutes. Selenium is surely the biggest name in Test Automation space right now, with its unique characteristics which have benefits no other automation tool provides-

· One of the major reasons why Selenium is so famous is because of the emergence of Agile testing methods and inclusion of DevOps by various industries across the world. And it is said that Selenium was built with a similar infrastructure even before these concepts were coined. It defines the power of Selenium as an Automation tool for any industry. It has more than 32% of software testing tool market shares, stating it’s dominance.

· Being an Open source, platform independent tool gives selenium an edge over other paid license tools. This means Selenium can be used by an individual, a small start-up or a world known tech giant. In fact, companies like Facebook and Amazon use Selenium to test their application before deployment. Also, it works on any OS, giving the user a variety of comfortable choices. Hence, it’s a breach into the IT sector is so deeply intense.

· Apart from choosing your favourite OS, Selenium also provides language flexibility to software testers. Selenium IDE has its own Selenium test scripting language, but the developments made allows a user to choose and work with Java, Pearl, Python, PHP, etc languages. The Send Keys structure translates the script of any language to Selenium script.

Technical advantages:

Easy to lodge in your desktop and use, contains a lot of online resources to help you test various web as well as mobile applications. Selenium IDE provides you with a record and playback option for authoring tests. It also helps you allow to run multiple tests cases at the same time with parallel executions and results.

While being able to generate test scripts in an efficient way, it also allows a user to validate the functionalities of the software while giving user, independence to reuse the same script for automated test frameworks. Hence the turnaround time is shortened while maintaining the quality of the tests.

Various test methods and variations like DB testing, cross-browser testing, Regression testing, business process testing etc are available in Selenium IDE, allowing software tester to work with different types of tests and provide the best output reports with all the bugs present.

Integrability with other tools, Jars, and frameworks is one of the best characteristics of Selenium. Like with Extent Reports it provides better insights regarding the application under test and with Sikuli, it can test video applications as well.

The UI of Selenium IDE is built in a very traditional and user-friendly manner, making it very easier to handle and work with. This makes it stand tall in its contemporaries.

One of the most important traits that Selenium fosters is transparency among the different teams of a project. By automating the overall test process, it acts as a catalyst in promoting continuous integration, continuous development and continuous delivery, making it the most eligible tool for this agile oriented IT sector. Learning Selenium is easy but getting an industry level knowledge is always hard to find. Cyber Success is holding the position of leading Software testing training institute in Pune, making its way into the industry oriented course and teaching methods. If you are trying to fit yourself into the ever growing and developing Selenium community, Cyber Success is the best start you can get. Cyber Success software classes in Pune are your one perfect shot to satisfy the thirst of knowledge regarding Selenium and other tools.
