Working in the Testing and QA industry have taught me a lot of things. I have worked upon various tools as a beginner and on an advanced level.

The major thing that I have noticed in all is:

  • The requirements of your project highly affects your choice of tools.
  • Your budget sometimes constraints you for the need of your tool too.
  • Specific features required in tools impacts your choice of tool.

I have tried various tools like: Testing Whiz, Browserstack, SauceLabs, LambdaTest, Cross Browser Testing, and yes, Selenium.

Here’s what I have to say:

  • If you have at least basic understanding of Automation Testing, you must try Selenium at least once.
  • If you have a good budget, you should go for Browserstack
  • If you need an economic tool with all the features and good usability, you should try LambdaTest at least once.

Also, there are many testing tools that you should try or at least know about:
