"A clever way to automate front-end tests on websites"

Pros: Being able to record and then test a particular workflow on our key websites, to ensure they are running as expected. These results can then be emailed to our team to ensure any issues are resolved quickly.

Cons: The 'small' price plan could be cheaper as there are users (like us) who use it infrequently. This small price plan is perhaps too generous in terms of the number of tests you can run, we don't even get close to 10,000, so their pricing could do with a few tiers below the 'small' one.

"interesting tool "

Pros: As a non-technical person, I am able to record tests without writing a single line of code and I am able to modify the steps to be reusable

Cons: doesn't support grouping, doesn't support jira integration, doesn't support multiple platforms and supports both FF and Chrome

"Simple and effective tool for web browser testing"

Pros: - Simple and easy capture feature with some useful customizations.
- Easy to manage test suites
- Possibility to reuse tests

Cons: - Serious limitations in terms of test flows (does not allow if/else validations nor while cycles).
- Tests can take long times to run in the cloud
- Impossible to step by step debug.

"Great tool for browser testing"

Comments: I have a great experience with Ghost Inspector. It really helps my team to assess the quality of the software we are building

Pros: I really like the usability of this tool and how complete is the documentation to help you create and execute test cases for your web platform

Cons: I think it is a little expensive for the amount of feature it offers when you compare it to other frameworks

"Simple tool to get automated tests up and running."

Pros: Really easy to use, just click through your site, record all scenarios, schedule tests etc. Really easy to use for non-technical people.

Cons: If your site is not very static, if it has many dynamic elements, pages - you can expect that these tests will often break when you change something. This is what happened to us and we stopped using this tool because we had to fix the tests too often. If your site does not change so often, then this is a great way to know if something breaks. As the tests are run in the cloud, you cant run them on your local environment. Speed is not so good, but that does not really matter in most cases.

Vendor Response

Thank you for your review! We totally hear you on test maintenance. It's one of the biggest challenges that comes with browser testing. We've got a few features (like test modularization) that are designed to help, and a few more features being developed. We know that we've still got a ways to go, but we're working to make test management as painless as possible. We hope we can offer something a little better suited to your situation in the future. Thanks again!
