We’ve change WebTest‘s motto (previously it was “Free open source tool for automated testing of web applications”) to better express what WebTest’s strengths are.
A lot of tools for automated testing of web app are available and have different features that may appear appealing in a first time. WebTest shines in what I call “professional test automation” because it allows to simply write test scripts that are reliable, fast, easy to run, cheap to maintain, helpful to quickly find errors and it scales fine and is easy to extend. Lisa Crispin, author of Testing Extreme Programming, described this perfectly: “the ROI on WebTest is many orders of magnitude higher than any other tool I’ve used”.
This new motto is only the first step. Keep tuned!
