If you ever had to write end-to-end tests for a web application, chances are you've stumbled upon Selenium. It's the de-facto tool for creating automated tests for web applications, and many existing testing frameworks base their technology around it.

Selenium is a decent framework for testing web applications. However, when you begin using the tool, you'll likely stumble upon plenty of frustrating issues. Don't get me wrong - Selenium works well enough, but it has plenty of issues that most testers deal with daily. Issues like slow or flaky tests aren't uncommon. Selenium's features are also limited, leaving you wasting time looking for plugins to compensate for its shortcomings.

You know there must be a way to build stable and reliable end-to-end tests for your web application, but you haven't found a tool that fits the bill. You want a testing framework that can fit easily into your workflow, helping you reduce your testing cycle times and the number of defects in your application. You want something to help you deliver quality software while spending less time testing and fixing bugs.

There are plenty of end-to-end testing tools, but they're built on Selenium and bring many of the same problems you want to escape from. But not all testing frameworks are alike. That's where TestCafe comes in.
