This is a trending topic on Automation testing for E2E web applications.

I have used Protractor and Jasmine for automation testing frameworks in JavaScript by using the Selenium web driver manager.

Now, new guy in town Cypress does not use Selenium and runs directly in your app without any json wire protrocol, but it does not support parallel testing or mobile testing.

Have you experienced both? Should I stick with old and known ?

Protractor Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Protractor?
Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
PhantomJS ( is a headless WebKit scriptable with JavaScript. It is used by hundreds of developers and dozens of organizations for web-related development workflow.
Jasmine is a Behavior Driven Development testing framework for JavaScript. It does not rely on browsers, DOM, or any JavaScript framework. Thus it's suited for websites, Node.js projects, or anywhere that JavaScript can run.
WebdriverIO lets you control a browser or a mobile application with just a few lines of code. Your test code will look simple, concise and easy to read.
The compass core framework is a design-agnostic framework that provides common code that would otherwise be duplicated across other frameworks and extensions.
