Automated functional testing tools drive the user interface, mimic the actions carried out by a human, and then check for the expected results. This type of testing is becoming increasingly important for numerous software projects to test for regressions, automatically verify all the key functionalities, and help software teams to simultaneously carry out several tests within a short span of time.

There are various testing tools, which help software teams to successfully build and execute many automated tests. However, it is important for the software testers to understand the requirements of the software being developed and then choose the testing tool accordingly. To make building and execution of automated tests easier we have listed some of the most popular automation testing tools, which will be useful for software testers while making a choice.

Why Opt for Automated Testing?

Manual software testing has been around for a very long time. However, automation testing has taken the industry by storm. Here are some of the major benefits of automated testing as compared to manual testing -

  • Manual testing for all workflows, fields and negative scenarios is time-consuming and expensive, which is not the case with automated testing
  • Testing multi-lingual websites manually can be extremely time-consuming. Leveraging automation increases the speed of test execution
  • The test coverage can be easily increased using automation
  • Being a mundane task, manual testing can be highly prone to errors unlike automation testing
  • As automated tests do not require any human intervention, they can be easily run unattended and thus save hours of human efforts
