Top 5 Websites to Compare Test Automation Tools

You are here, which means you are definitely searching for “test automation tools”.

“90% of consumers read online reviews before visiting a business.”, directly from an infographic by Khalid Saleh.

Now, let’s say you want to buy a compact car and you want to finalize a few ones to start with their trials. What is the first thing you will do? You will search the various compact cars online and would compare them. The comparison will be based on the features, comforts, reviews, pricing, etc. The car that will meet all your requirements will be the perfect one for you.

Same is the case with our automation testing tools. Selenium brought the automation to the boring and tedious manual testing world. And, then came the codeless automation testing tools.

But, which test automation tool is the best for your enterprise?

To know this, we would need to find out their features, benefits, comparisons with other leading ones, reviews, pricing, etc. And, except for their own website, it is difficult to compare them.

Hence, here is the list of top 5 websites where you can find your shortlisted and well-known automation testing tools with the detailed reviews and recommendations.

1. AlternativeTo

AlternativeTo is one of the best websites to look for your automated software testing tool. Following are the reasons why it is at the number 1:

Another good site for choosing your automation testing tool, is Capterra. I guess most of you know this and I am sure, you have had great experience with that. Following are the reasons why this site is better than the rest:

  • Capterra is well-known for having real reviews for any tool as it ensures that the people that provide the reviews, are the real users of the tools. For this, Capterra asks them to upload the images of the interior of the application that proves that the person giving the review is the real user.

  • It rates each test automation tool from 1 to 5 and the ratings are based on evaluation & contracting, integration & deployment and product capabilities

Bonus – DZone/SoftwareTestingHelp

Well, I am listing down 2 sites – softwaretestinghelp.com and dzone.com that do not have user reviews and absolute comparisons. But, I would really like to have both these websites in this list because of the following reasons:

  • These websites do not have their own test automation tool. So, there’s no way they are promoting any individual product.
  • These sites accept articles from the users. So, there are increased number of chances to have the exact and detailed information on each of the automation testing tool.

Whenever you will search “automated testing tools” on DZone, you will see a below snippet:

If you have noticed, with such small term, DZone offers around 41,873 article results that only talk about the automated testing tools.
