Webinar content

Have you ever wondered how to speed up your automation tests? Or whether waiting for elements to load on webpage should be your concern? This webinar will answer (not only) these questions. We will present and compare Browser and Selenium web automation technologies in Robot Framework. See for yourself which one wins.

Selenium is now the de facto standard web automation tool. Some say it is old and not appropriate for web automation due to new technologies used in frontend development. We will focus on Robot Framework Browser as this library is based on Playwright which claims it enables reliable end-to-end testing for modern web apps. We will compare code in both technologies, execute a set of tests to see the results, evaluate pros and cons, talk about our overall experience with the Browser library, and many more.
