"I find it is a shame that my technical peers never experienced the productivity gains we experienced using your product (QF-Test). Many have difficulties envisioning a painless Test Automation experience.

They 'know' that Test Automation is extremely hard and expensive since all they ever used were Selenium and other wrapper tools around Selenium that require some programming knowledge. Your product could be a game changer in so many organizations."

Selenium vs. QF-Test

Which one fits to my team and our requirements best?

  • Instead of an either-or-question we recommend using the benefits of both tools. With Selenium (or the extension Selenium IDE) you can you can, for example, work when dialogues play a minor role in the system test. However, QF-Test is better suited for dialogues.
  • Also you can only use Web tests with Selenium in Firefox or Chrome (playback is also possible in more browsers). QF-Test supports additional browsers for web tests (Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Microsoft Edge (Chromium based) and Internet Explorer; also 64bit) as well as the headless browser versions of Chrome, Firefox and Edge (Chromium based) and is easier to handle for testers.
  • You can even integrate your existing Java based Selenium tests in QF-Test and since QF-Test version 4.1 develop combined Selenium/QF-Test tests. Whenever bugs occur testers and developers can communicate quickly and have a common basis for the same target of a high quality software.

Why should I pay for a commercial tool instead of using a freeware tool?

The tool price is only a small part of the test project costs. The main part is the personnel costs, i.e. the effectiveness with which tests can be implemented and maintained is the most decisive factor. This is not taken into account in the pure tool price consideration. In addition, the test tool pays for itself after approximately 3 test cycles. Further information on testautomation and ROI
