I currently work on a codebase with a bunch of old Cucumber and Jasmine E2E selenium tests. The Jasmine tests are visual regression tests, and seem to cause the most pain for us (always breaking, behaving differently in CI vs local etc).

It would be nice to phase these out, but I'd like to hear your thoughts first. Do you think visual regression tests are worthwhile? would snapshot tests in Jest be a better alternative?

I plan on eventually replacing the Cucumber tests with Cypress, so phasing out the Jasmine tests would mean we could completely replace Selenium with Cypress. I just need a solid argument why we don't need them anymore 😄
