      frankr5 It works with screenshots, not xpath selectors. Kantu is much easier to use, especially on modern websites with tons of Javascript.

      Very easy to use while still being powerful. You can even add Selenium code to it if there are certain things it can't do.

      TestCafe vs Selenium opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      TestCafe has its own driver for browsers so it's not just another wrapper around Selenium but whole new testing framework on its own. Also provides functionality that was never possible with selenium like testing on remote devices or isolated environment for user roles in one test. Also it's just an npm package so installation and setup is as easy as typing `npm install testcafe` no more dependencies, no more configuration.
