  • Watir
    • Watir is IE only
      • although there is a FireWatir project, it is out of sync and not able to easily share tests from Watir itself
    • Watir scripts are written in Ruby
      • for Java, Watij
      • for .NET (C#), Watin
  • Selenium (OpenQa.org)
    • Scripts are JavaScript-based
    • Scripts can be subject to hanging (especially with popups) although "click and wait" has been a sufficient workaround for some.
    • Selenium does have a script recorder.
      • And of course my favorite quote: "Having a good recorder decreases the success rate of your tool." -Bret
    • The Selenium IDE can generate scripts in multiple formats: XML, JavaScript, etc..
