10 Best Automation Testing Tools to Watch in 2020by Vivek Kumar September 22, 2020
Explore the list of 10 best test automation tools to deliver quality products at scale.
Unlike manual testing which is being done by a human sitting in front of a computer, automation testing is a software testing technique to test and compare the actual outcome with the expected outcome, all by using special automated testing tools. Also called test automation, this testing technique is an enabler of the successful adoption of Agile and DevOps systems. Leveraging the right tools for automation testing at the right time is crucial to deliver a quality product at speed. However, effective deployment of automation testing requires considerable investments of money and resources. Implemented properly, it will save the human effort and time to a great extent, with leaving no or very less scope for errors in testing.
Here we have brought together 10 best automation testing tools businesses should consider in 2020.
Selenium is one of the best testing automation tools when it comes to web application testing tools. It can be executed in multiple browsers and Operating systems and is compatible with several programming languages and automation testing frameworks. Selenium helps create complex and advanced automation scripts, in addition to the base for most of the other software testing tools and supports parallel test execution, thus lowers test execution time. Selenium WebDriver, also known as Selenium 2.0, executes test scripts through browser-specific drivers. It involves API, library, driver, and framework.
Appium, an open-source automation mobile testing tool, which is developed and supported by Sauce Labs to automate native and hybrid mobile apps. A cross-platform mobile automation tool, Appium allows the same test to be run on manifold platforms, and multiple devices can be easily tested by Appium in parallel. It also supports automation tests on the simulators (iOS) and emulators (Android) as well as physical devices (Android and iOS both). Appium is very much similar to the Selenium Webdriver testing tool.
Qualibrate is a 3-in-1 solution that empowers teams to create documentation, automated tests and training materials in one click. It supports Web applications running in different browser types. This easy to use interface allows users to record a Business Process in minutes. And their all steps and input data will be stored centrally on the cloud and ready-to-use for different purposes, including test automation and accelerated manual testing; business process documentation, and end-user training.

Thanks to its simple and clean setup, users can easily start their test automation with TestProject.
Testsigma is a cloud-based automation testing tool for continuous testing in Agile and DevOps. As an AI-driven test automation tool, Testsigma uses simple English to automate even complex tests and well meets the continuous delivery needs. It also provides a test automation ecosystem with all the elements required for continuous testing and allows users to automate Web, mobile applications and API services, as well as supports thousands of device/OS/browser combos on the cloud and on users’ local machines.
It is an open-source software testing tool written in Ruby and let users write test cases that anyone can easily understand regardless of their technical knowledge. Cucumber is used to execute automated acceptance tests written in the “Gherkin” language, a domain-specific language for behavior descriptions. This test automation tool makes use of two important files: Feature file, which contains code written in Gherkin and Step definition file, which involves the actual code written by developers. Many organizations prefer integrating Cucumber with Selenium as it makes it easier to read and understand the flow of applications among the members from different teams.
