"What I like about Selenium HQ is that we wrote it ourselves. I think it's perfect. It's a framework that you can use to devise your own products, which is nice."
"The most valuable features of Selenium HQ are it is open-source, has a good interface, and integrates well."
"What I like the most about this product is that it gives us a lot of freedom to code anything, there is no restriction on the type of function you can do."
"The most valuable features are ExpectedConditions, actions, assertions, verifications, flexible rates, and third-party integrations."
"The solution is very easy to use. Once you learn how to do things, it becomes very intuitive and simple."
"It is more stable in comparison to other solutions because they have quite some experience in the market."
"In general, I would say that the API set is the most valuable feature."
"It is compatible with and supports multiple languages, such as Java and Python. It is open source, and it is widely used."
"The stability has always been very good."
"It is a very common and strong product. A lot of support is available for this product."
"Easy to use and easily scalable."
"The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable."
"Visual Studio is highly powerful. It's probably the best software development tool on the market."
"I was satisfied with the support given by customer service."
"It is very easy to use. You can handle a lot of things together at once in one package, which is a good point for us."
"Customization is the most powerful feature of this product."
"One drawback to Selenium is that there is nothing like an object repository, such as that found in QTP, especially considering continuous integration practices that have become common nowadays."
"For email-based applications, we can't automate as we would like to, making it necessary to bring in a third-party product to do so."
"We'd like to see some more image management in future releases."
"Selenium HQ could have better interaction with SAP products."
"Coding skills are required to use Selenium, so it could be made more user-friendly for non-programmers."
"I would like for the next release to support parallel testing."
"It would be very helpful to be able to write scripts in a GUI, rather than depend so heavily on the command line."
"For people that don't know about technology, maybe it's difficult to use."
"It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently."
"In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line."
"The documentation is limited."
"Visual Studio Test Professional could improve by having better integration with external databases."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"Sometimes Visual Studio is slow. It uses a lot of resources like memory and processing power. You should optimize the performance by only installing what you need on your machine. Don't install unnecessary things that will slow your machine."
"There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less."
