A clever way to automate front-end tests on websites

Pros: Being able to record and then test a particular workflow on our key websites, to ensure they are running as expected. These results can then be emailed to our team to ensure any issues are resolved quickly.

Cons: The 'small' price plan could be cheaper as there are users (like us) who use it infrequently. This small price plan is perhaps too generous in terms of the number of tests you can run, we don't even get close to 10,000, so their pricing could do with a few tiers below the 'small' one.

Pros: Currently, Ghost Inspector is the tool that our QA team uses to run our automatic regression testing in our applications. It is also easy to integrate with other applications and send reports of the test results.

Cons: The user experience should be improved, sometimes is not easy to train new colleagues on this tool but with some time investment, they stay autonomous.

Pros: Ghost Inspector makes it extremely easy to put together some pretty comprehensive integration tests a website or web-app. Ghost Inspector's test creation workflow is extremely easy to use, and the ability to see screenshots and videos of tests when they fail is fantastic.

Cons: As is often the case, I find the pricing a bit steep. We've also got some (admittedly edge-case) needs that we'd love the Chrome testing agent to be able to do (particularly around multimedia) which GI doesn't currently support, but I have hope that they'll get there eventually.

Simple tool to get automated tests up and running.

Features & Functionality

Pros: Really easy to use, just click through your site, record all scenarios, schedule tests etc. Really easy to use for non-technical people.

Cons: If your site is not very static, if it has many dynamic elements, pages - you can expect that these tests will often break when you change something. This is what happened to us and we stopped using this tool because we had to fix the tests too often. If your site does not change so often, then this is a great way to know if something breaks.

As the tests are run in the cloud, you cant run them on your local environment. Speed is not so good, but that does not really matter in most cases.

Thank you for your review! We totally hear you on test maintenance. It's one of the biggest challenges that comes with browser testing. We've got a few features (like test modularization) that are designed to help, and a few more features being developed. We know that we've still got a ways to go, but we're working to make test management as painless as possible. We hope we can offer something a little better suited to your situation in the future. Thanks again!
