Selenium vs WebStorm: 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.
Selenium belongs to "Browser Testing" category of the tech stack, while WebStorm can be primarily classified under "Integrated Development Environment".
"Automates browsers", "Testing" and "Essential tool for running test automation" are the key factors why developers consider Selenium; whereas "Intelligent ide ", "Smart development environment" and "Easy js debugging" are the primary reasons why WebStorm is favored.
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.
MIT, PedidosYa, and HubSpot are some of the popular companies that use Selenium, whereas WebStorm is used by Lyft, PedidosYa, and Edify. Selenium has a broader approval, being mentioned in 770 company stacks & 425 developers stacks; compared to WebStorm, which is listed in 463 company stacks and 435 developer stacks.

We use Prettier because when we rebooted our front-end stack, I decided that it would be an efficient use of our time to not worry about code formatting issues and personal preferences during peer review. Prettier eliminates this concern by auto-formatting our code to a deterministic output. We use it along with ESLint and have 1st-class support in our WebStorm and Visual Studio Code editors.
With this structure, we're able to combine the automation efforts of each team member into a centralized repository while also providing new relevant metrics to business owners.
When I switched to Visual Studio Code 12 months ago from PhpStorm I was in love, it was great. However after using VS Code for a year, I see myself switching back and forth between WebStorm and VS Code. The VS Code plugins are great however I notice Prettier, auto importing of components and linking to the definitions often break, and I have to restart VS Code multiple times a week and sometimes a day.
We use Ruby here so I do like that Visual Studio Code highlights that for me out of the box, with WebStorm I'd need to probably also install RubyMine and have 2 IDE's going at the same time.
Should I stick with Visual Studio Code, or switch to something else? #help
I chose WebdriverIO and Appium to implement a E2E tests solution on a native mobile app. WebdriverIO goes well beyond just implementing the Selenium / Appium protocol and allows to run tests in parallel out of the box. Appium has the big advantage of supporting iOS and Android platforms, so the test codebase and tools are exactly the same, which greatly reduces the learning curve and implementation time.
가장 강력한 웹 UI / UX 테스트 툴 이지만, 문제도 많다. iframe 안에 있는 건 잘 select 가 안되기도 하고, 화면이 작아 컴포넌트가 화면에 보이지 않으면 또 select 할 수 없다. 하지만 브라우저를 있는 그대로 제어 할 수 있다는 게 가장 큰 매력이다.
ps. selenide 와 같이 쓰면 코드가 많이 개선된다.
Maintaining and expanding automated regression tests is one of my primary responsibilities at CrowdTwist. We use Selenium to test the front-end parts of our platform.
Used Selenium web-driver for automated QA testing in continuous integration and continuous deployment.
- Navigating our site for tests
- Navigating other sites that discriminate against non-human visitors
For all our team's coding because of its support of core libraries like angular and ruby on rails
Selenium is a great way to automatically test if a build is sane and can be deployed.
