Writing Selenium WebDriver test code can involve learning a lot of syntax to write the selectors, and so on. This can be a little bit daunting at first. Additionally, in the development of your test scripts, you may have mistakes in the selectors which you only notice when you try to run the test. This means you lose time when you have to go back, edit the test, and try again. These factors speak for using an automation solution which enables you to record a test and generate the script. Something which automates creating the correct selectors and script as a whole. An app which creates the initial script and gives you the possibility of tweaking the script manually afterwards.
The list of supported languages and frameworks is growing as each new version of Silk WebDriver is released. As mentioned Silk WebDriver is currently available for Windows and a version for Apple MacOS is being planned. There will also be a professional version which includes additional functionality such as support for mobile devices.
