Applitools vs Selenium: What are the differences?
What is Applitools? Automated visual website testing. Applitools is a visual functional testing tool that allows developers to run simple selenium tests to capture and compare screenshots from various application versions, without having to anticipate required tests in advance.
What is Selenium? Web Browser Automation. 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.
Applitools can be classified as a tool in the "In-Browser Testing" category, while Selenium is grouped under "Browser Testing".
Selenium is an open source tool with 14.7K GitHub stars and 4.92K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Selenium's open source repository on GitHub.
