  • Spidr - web spidering library that can spider a site, multiple domains, certain links or infinitely.
  • cobweb - web crawler that can use resque to cluster crawls to quickly crawl extremely large sites.
  • Capybara - an integration testing tool for rack based web applications. It simulates how a user would interact with a website.

PHP

Python

  • Selenium with Python - Selenium Python bindings
  • Selene - Selenide-inspired concise and readable automated test framework, supports Ajax well like Selenide.

  • Galen Framework - Automated testing of look and feel for your responsive websites.
  • Serenity - It is an open source library for writing better quality automated acceptance tests faster. (Formerly Thucydides).
  • seleniumQuery - jQuery-like cross-driver interface in Java for WebDriver. Designed as a thin layer, it can be used alone or on top of your favorite framework just to make some cases (e.g. asserting/waiting) simpler when needed.

C#

  • Selenium with C# - Selenium C# bindings
  • Atata - Automated web testing full featured framework based on Selenium WebDriver.
  • Strontium - A .NET implementation (but outdated) for Selenium/WebDriver (Remote) Server

Groovy

  • Geb - It can be used for scripting, scraping and general automation — or equally as a functional/web/acceptance testing solution via integration with testing frameworks such as Spock, JUnit & TestNG.

CSS Regression Testing

Containers

Docker

  • elgalu/docker-selenium - Selenium in Docker with Chrome & Firefox plus video recording support.
  • Ggr - A lightweight load balancer used to create big Selenium clusters.
  • SeleniumHQ/docker-selenium - Docker images for Selenium Standalone Server, Hub, and Node configurations with Chrome and Firefox.
  • Selenoid - A lightweight Selenium hub implementation launching browsers in Docker containers.
  • zalando/zalenium - Allows anyone to have a disposable and flexible Selenium Grid infrastructure
  • bravostudiodev/bravo-grid - Docker image/setup for Selenium Grid Extras (see under Selenium Grid section), for providing remote Sikuli test/automation execution and grid node file upload/download support.

Driver

Desktop (browsers)

  • Firefox - Firefox driver (for FF < v48) is included in the selenium-server-standalone.jar available in the downloads.
  • Geckodriver - Firefox driver (for FF > v48), supported with Selenium >= v3
  • Chrome - ChromeDriver is a standalone server which implements WebDriver's wire protocol for Chromium.
  • Internet Explorer - The InternetExplorerDriver is a standalone server which implements WebDriver's wire protocol.
  • Edgedriver - Microsoft Webdriver server for Edge
  • Safari - The SafariDriver is implemented as a Safari browser extension. The driver inverts the traditional client/server relationship and communicates with the WebDriver client using WebSockets (only supported for Safari <= v9, all new Safari version comming with macOS Sierra come with an integrated SafariDriver that is closed source by Apple).
  • Opera - OperaDriver is a vendor-supported WebDriver implementation developed by Opera Software and volunteers that implements WebDriver API for Opera.

  • Winium - Automation framework for Windows platforms. It is free. It is opensource. It is Selenium-based. Supports: Windows Desktop (WPF, WinForms); Windows Store or Universal Apps for Windows Phone; Windows Phone Silverlight Apps.
  • QtWebDriver - For using WebDriver to automate Qt-based GUI applications.
  • AutoItDriverServer - Selenium server to control/drive AutoIt via (Remote)WebDriver API.
  • AutoPyDriverServer - Selenium server to control/drive AutoPy via (Remote)WebDriver API.
