“Is Cypress better than Selenium WebDriver? I get asked this a lot.
Frankly, the easiest path of a ‘this vs. that’ talk is to try and find out which is "best."
But I will not take that path.
Instead, I will try and explain how Cypress is different from Selenium WebDriver.”
— Gil Tayar, Sr. Architect @ Applitools
There’s a new claim to the throne of functional test automation tools: Cypress.io.
Is Cypress fast? Yes. Is Cypress interactive? Yep. Is Cypress reliable? You bet. And best of all…it’s cool!
But is Cypress an alternative to Selenium WebDriver?
In this webinar, Sr. Architect Gil Tayar will take an in-depth look at both Cypress and Selenium WebDriver: he will demonstrate how to write Cypress test, how it’s used, and discuss how these two tools differ.
