Finalist: DevExpress TestCafé
When you build Web Apps, you usually need them to run on multiple platforms. So, predictably, running tests on the target platforms is extremely important to making sure that your users will have the best experience with your apps. DevExpress TestCafé v. 2014 understands this essential requirement and provides an innovative solution for testing HTML5 Web apps. The focus on Web testing makes this tool easier to setup, learn, and configure than testing solutions that also cover native desktop and mobile applications.
TestCafé can run on Linux, MacOS, and Windows, and it relies on a a plugin-free Web testing environment. The lack of plugins makes it easy to use the test recorder in any HTML 5 browser running on any device that provides it. This way, TestCafé makes sure that you will be able to target more devices in the future as long as they rely on HMTL5-compatible browsers. The product has been Web based since its first release, but the recent addition of a 100% Web-based test code editor accommodates users who don't want to leave the browser during the test process.
If your main target is HTML5 Web apps and you don't need a testing suite to automate tests on desktop or native mobile apps, TestCafé will provide you everything you need to deliver reliable software.
