Selenium vs TestCafe: What are the differences?
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.
What is TestCafe? A Node.js tool to automate end-to-end web testing. It is a pure node.js end-to-end solution for testing web apps. It takes care of all the stages: starting browsers, running tests, gathering test results and generating reports.
Selenium and TestCafe are primarily classified as "Browser Testing" and "Testing Frameworks" tools respectively.
Selenium and TestCafe are both open source tools. It seems that Selenium with 15.2K GitHub stars and 5.03K forks on GitHub has more adoption than TestCafe with 7.24K GitHub stars and 438 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Selenium has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1046 company stacks & 2546 developers stacks; compared to TestCafe, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.
