Katalon Recorder vs Selenium IDE
The 60-Second Elevator Pitch
- Katalon Recorder provides a faster time-to-value than Selenium IDE. You can start automating instantly, without to worry about manually creating a project, test case, specifying a URL. A large percentage of our users use the product almost every day, so for them such time-saving compound to be a critical advantage.
- Katalon Recorder runs directly on your current tab. This capability allows you to automate bits and pieces of your workflow, where a lot of actions are repetitive but some actions must be carried out by a human. This this different from Selenium IDE which always executes on a new tab.
- Katalon Recorder enables you to keep track of execution results. You can report/share your execution results to your manager/colleagues/friends through our (free) integration with our companion product - Katalon TestOps.
