Selenium IDE is a popular open-source tool for recording and running automated browser tests. You can use it to interact with a browser the way a human would, doing things like navigating to URLs, filling in forms, and clicking on links and buttons. You can also use “assertions” to verify things are working as expected, like checking that elements are present, text is present, inputs contain certain values, et cetera.

Automated Browser Testing & Monitoring. Easily build browser tests for your website or application. Monitor continously.

Ghost Inspector is an automated website testing and monitoring solution that allows you to check for bugs/issues/problems with your website or web application.

Typically, developers (or their QA team) will check for problems by manually testing the system, or by hand coding tedious tests. This is slow, costly, and often allows things to be missed. Ghost Inspector makes this much more efficient. We provide both a Chrome extension for recording tests right in your browser, as well as a test editing interface for manually building your tests.

Once tests are created, they’re stored and run in the cloud without any setup on the customer's end. Tests can be run manually, on a set schedule, or via our API. Results are stored indefinitely and notifications can be emailed to you.

Catch website bugs and regressions before they cost you.
