Selenium is a an open source, portable software testing framework for web browsers. Selenium provides a record/playback tool for authoring tests without learning a test scripting language (Selenium IDE). It also provides a development language (Selenese) to write tests in a number of popular programming languages, including Java, C#, Groovy, Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby. Selenium automates your tests so they can be run, quickly, against many different web browsers at the same time.
Sauce Labs was created by the founders of Selenium. We deploy the latest version of Selenium and have the most experience running a Selenium cloud so that your tests will complete quickly, securely and with no false positives. Sauce spins up a pristine new VM for every test that helps secure your data and ensure low false positive results. Because we destroy the VM after each test, your data will never be around for others to see nor will data from previous tests runs remain to impact your tests.
Sauce Labs comes with the following benefits:
- New browser support - Test on over 650 browsers and OS combinations that your customers are using as soon as your app hits the market.
- Test in parallel - Whether you want to test against 10 browsers or 100 at any given time - and spin up as many VMs as your need to accelerate your tests.
- Easier debugging - Every time you run a test on Sauce, you have access to video and screenshots of each step.
- Mobile emulators and simulators - Sauce comes equipped with over 80 versions of iOS and Android emulators and simulators.
