Comments: Having tried a number of automation testing solution, I was looking for a solution that comes with the power of managing and creating test artifacts that tools like TestComplete or QTP provide, while also want the dynamic and flexible of a test framework using Selenium.

Then I found out about Katalon Studio and finally satisfied. The tool is packed with powerful features like Object Spy that can help me to capture and create test objects in my website in a flash or the scripting function provide the full experience like coding in a development environment.

Comments: I've been using Katalon for a second project. And here are my comments:

I find it very useful for testing over again my project after adding new features. It really saves time.
UI and documentation have been improved significantly for beginner testers since my first use of Katalon. Now I can find helpful tutorials and video clips.
As my projects are not big, I have not make full use of the tools. But it has very nice features such as mobile testing, test reporting, CI, and integration with Jira and Git.
The performance is quite good.
I highly recommended the tool and hope it will become better and better.

Comments:
Those who do not have many experiences in automation test should download Katalon Studio. Having tried for more than 1 month and here are my objective opinions.
Upsides:
+ Simple installation and easy to set up the environment
+ Record & Playback functions are quite good so I can quickly create new test cases.
+ I also try to test my REST web service by Katalon Studio and I think it works perfectly, helps me a lot
Downsides:
+ Documentations are not very clear and hard to find the solutions for my problems
+ The size of the application is somehow quite big.
+ Still slow when running a lot of test cases.

It is still a new tool and I hope Katalon Studio will get better in the future. I will recommend it to my colleagues

Pros: - Free
- Easy to use
- Starting and advanced mode

Cons: - Heavy file to download
- Slow sometimes

Overall: Just heard about this tool while searching on some forums. Since people said it's free and easy for manual testers to start automation testing, especially for Selenium/Appium users, I did download and try Katalon Studio for a couple of weeks.
Very simple to download, install the app, then use their built-in keywords to start the automation testing. The JIRA integration is also helpful and necessary. The support team is extremely nice :)
But one small thing to complain: for any new version update, I need to download the file, which is a bit large
Anyway, it's worth trying.
Thanks for the cool testing framework!
