Hound by Etsy vs Selenium: What are the differences?

What is Hound by Etsy? Lightning fast code searching made easy. Hound is an extremely fast source code search engine. The core is based on this article (and code) from Russ Cox: Regular Expression Matching with a Trigram Index. Hound itself is a static React frontend that talks to a Go backend. The backend keeps an up-to-date index for each repository and answers searches through a minimal API.

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.

Hound by Etsy and Selenium are primarily classified as "Code Search" and "Browser Testing" tools respectively.

Hound by Etsy and Selenium are both open source tools. It seems that Selenium with 20.6K GitHub stars and 6.27K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hound by Etsy with 4.76K GitHub stars and 525 GitHub forks.
