Oliver Wendell Holmes once said: I would not give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.
Tool evangelists around the world have been using this phrase for selling their products. They make it a point to look into customer’s eyes and say “Scalability, you know, that’s the main problem with Selenium. What about 3 years down the line, when you have multiple applications in your landscape and Selenium does not support it?”
But they simply ignore the fact, knowingly off course, that this ever belting technology world is going where Selenium is right now. Applications are shrinking into browser windows and changing tracks to align itself to this mobile era.
Even commercial tool like TestComplete from SmartBear has started supporting Selenium and many will follow soon. Reason for this change is not only that most of the organizations are preferring open source tools like Selenium for starting point of their automation activities but also the fact that Selenium by far has proven itself to be one of the best automation tools when it comes to mobile or browser based desktop automation.
Here our aim is to display how seamlessly Selenium integrates with TestComplete and QAComplete and it is for us to understand that it is not Selenium which needs other tools to extend it but it is the other way round.
