Selenium Rules Web Testing World...And We Couldn't be Happier

Posted Jul 16th, 2010

A new survey by ActiveState shows Selenium to be the most highly adopted testing framework among the automated testing community.

According to the author's analysis, the "results were a mixed bag as the test automation community has a lot of frameworks and testing approaches from which to choose," but we read things a bit differently.

With 40% of users preferring Selenium, and the next most popular approach being "other," it's clear who the winner is. But of course, there are "lies, damn lies, and statistics" to keep in mind, and at Sauce Labs, we admit to having a special bias towards Selenium :-). It's hard not to, though, when Jason Huggins, our co-founder, is the original creator, and was recently named one of the 25 "Best CTOs of 2010" by InfoWorld.

With that being said, it's great there are many choices for automated testing, and we're glad that our favorite testing platform is at least winning "by a nose."
