Katalon Recorder and Selenium IDE are two of the most popular solutions for browser automation. Take a look at this page to understand why our 500,000+ users place their trust in Katalon Recorder over Selenium IDE.
Why Katalon Recorder?
Katalon Recorder allows users to start recording and executing test cases in no time. Save time from repetitive project creation and URL specification, which is a little tedious with Selenium IDE.
Integration between manual and automated efforts
Sometimes it's necessary to have a workflow with both manual and automated steps. In these cases, Selenium isn't a good fit, but Katalon Recorder allows you to execute a series of mixed automated and manual tests on the same tab.
An easy way to manage tests
Not integrating with any test management system, Selenium IDE does not provide a centralized test report portal for review and further collaboration with other members. Fortunately, the built-in integration between Katalon Recorder and Katalon TestOps allows users to manage and share their test results easily, powered by well-designed charts out of the box.
Product improvement and support
Selenium IDE does not have a dedicated development team, so there's no clear product roadmap, and documentation and support can be lacking. On the other hand, Katalon Recorder is built by Katalon — a leading quality assurance platform in the market. It is released stably and gained many added values from other Katalon solution integration.
