QTP/UFT has been one of the leading Test Automation tool in the market. QTP supports a wide variety of technologies and with the recent article from Telerik - "5 hidden costs of Selenium". Is it really worth migrating to Selenium? If you think No, then think again. We recently migrated a client from QTP to Selenium, and the results was a 80% savings in execution time using one single machine.
