Cucumber vs TestCafe: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cucumber as "Simple, human collaboration". Cucumber is a tool that supports Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) - a software development process that aims to enhance software quality and reduce maintenance costs.

It takes care of all the stages: starting browsers, running tests, gathering test results and generating reports.

Cucumber and TestCafe can be categorized as "Testing Frameworks" tools.
