First generation test automation tools were not built with the capabilities to meet the needs of today’s high-velocity, agile software development teams. Legacy solutions typically involve complex frameworks and an outdated UI that requires highly skilled users to create, maintain, and run tests.
mabl's is the industry-leading low code test automation alternative to Selenium that can help you significantly improve test reliability and reduce test maintenance by as much as 80%.
Selenium - and similar assembled testing frameworks - have been the de facto web application testing standard for nearly two decades. It’s a tool that software development teams have relied on to build and execute automated tests that help prevent bugs from being released into production. Although Selenium is still used today, software development has evolved and so have quality engineering strategies and testing tools.
It’s no great revelation that development timelines have accelerated, and applications have grown more complex. Software teams who are using Selenium in today’s fast-paced world are struggling with test reliability issues, and trying to keep up with the maintenance of all their tests and packages. While there are still many use-cases where Selenium is the right tool for the job, increasingly teams are adopting alternatives like mabl’s low-code test automation solution.

"The thing that really sold us on mabl was its ability to integrate with our engineering workflow. Engineers can be running mabl tests, not just the unit tests, not just their integration tests, but actual mabl tests as part of their workflow. We think it's going to have an incredibly important impact on the future growth of Stack Overflow."Read More
"We became much more efficient, and we’re covering more functionality. We’ve recouped about half a week of engineering time to work on other things, meaning we’re covering more functionality on a weekly basis."Read More
"The Unified Runner with Intelligent Wait has allowed our team to focus on improving our product and the user experience, rather than managing tests. The faster, more consistent execution has been instrumental in showing the value of testing across the development organization."Read More

"Using hiring and traditional automation tools like Selenium, it would have taken two years and $240K to accomplish what mabl helped ITS do in just four months at 80% cost savings.”Read the Story
"With mabl, we can accomplish in a few hours what it used to take two weeks of testing to do. The platform is increasing the velocity of the sprint teams so that we’re delivering more product with a higher level of quality, and providing a lot more value to the business. I wish we’d found mabl even earlier than we did."Read the Story
It’s the only SaaS solution that tightly integrates automated end-to-end testing into the entire development lifecycle.
