Modern testing practices have shifted dramatically in recent years. As open source tools such as Selenium have begun to be accepted and incorporated into the enterprise testing landscape, proprietary tools like HP’s QTP/UFT have begun to be transitioned out in many cases. While there are many benefits to using a tool like Selenium (for example, it’s maximized when used as an automated testing tool, works with every browser, and plays nicely with all major computer languages and frameworks), the most compelling case to make the transition is the developer and QA time saved.
Join us for our next webinar, QTP/UFT VS Selenium, featuring Tarun Lalwani, QTP Expert and author of QuickTest Professional Unplugged. Hear about how we generated an 80% execution time savings by migrating client’s test suite from QTP to Selenium. We will also answer following questions:
- How is Selenium different from QTP?
- Why do I need to migrate to Selenium?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of the migration?
- How do I plan the migration?
- What challenges will I face during Migration?

A live Q&A will follow at the end of the presentation.
Note: This is not a “how to” or “technology session” on Selenium or QTP. This is session is focused on giving you a understanding whether Selenium is right for you or not.
We’ve just released our new platform configurator that easily generates the code you need to configure your automated tests to run on Sauce. You can select the automation API, device type, operating system, and browser version you want to test with, and it will automatically generate a snippet of code for those desired capabilities. You can toggle between code generated for different languages. (more…)
We’re excited to be releasing support for testing on Chrome and Firefox beta and dev versions for Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. The beta and dev versions are available for both automated and manual testing. And to give you access to new platforms as quickly as possible, we’ll continue to add support for bleeding edge versions the day they’re released. (more…)
HomeAway, Inc. is the world’s leading online marketplace for the vacation rental industry. With over one million live vacation rental listings in 190 countries paired with a family of 50 websites and hundreds of applications thanks to a series of acquisitions, quality is their top priority. To get ahead of the curve, Carl’s team is trying to automate and use best practices like continuous integration as much as possible. We were also thrilled to hear that they’re using Appium, a cross-platform test automation framework powered by Sauce Labs, for their mobile testing. Carl also says Sauce fits perfectly into their testing process.
Watch the video below to learn more about their path towards continuous delivery, and how Sauce fits into that story.
The Selenium Conference is a volunteer-run, non-profit event presented by members of the Selenium Community. The goal of the conference is to bring together Selenium developers & enthusiasts from around the world to share ideas, socialize, and work together on advancing the present and future success of the project.
“Recently at Sauce Labs we decided to retool our documentation system. This decision came after accumulating docs in a number of template systems and repos which were difficult to standardize and maintain. The result of this effort was a new markdown-based docs site available at docs.saucelabs.com.”

On Saturday, August 2nd, we will update our Selenium and Chrome default versions to meet current, stable implementations. This update affects users that run automated Selenium tests on Sauce.
Default versions of Selenium and Chrome are used only for tests that don’t have a specified browser version. Users who choose to assign Selenium and Chrome versions to their tests will remain unaffected.
Below you’ll find more details about the updates.
Currently the default Selenium version is 2.30.0. Following the update on August 2, the new default Selenium version will be 2.42.2. We advise you to test the new version (2.42.2) in advance using the following desired capability:
If you run into any issues with the new default, note you can continue using the previous version (2.30.0) after Saturday by making the test request the selenium-version desired capability referred to below:
Currently the default Chrome versions are Chrome 27 and Chromedriver 1. Following the update on August 2, the new default Chrome versions will be Chrome 35 and Chromedriver 2.10. We advise you to test the new versions (Chrome 35, Chromedriver 2) in advance using the following desired capabilities:
"browserName": "chrome" "version": "35"
By requesting Chrome 35, Chromedriver 2.10 will be used automatically.
If you run into any issues with the new default, you can continue using the previous versions (Chrome 27, Chromedriver 1) after Saturday by making the test request the “version” desired capabilities referred to below:
"browserName": "chrome" "version": "27"
If you see any issues after moving your tests to these new versions, we suggest checking for known issues on https://code.google.com/p/selenium/issues/list or contacting the Chromedriver and Selenium user groups.
