For many years Selenium IDE has been used by companies to test their applications. Selenium IDE is a Record and Playback tool that helps in automating tests. Many applications and website have been and are being tested with this test tool. Unfortunately Selenium IDE is phased out with Firefox 55 leaving many people with a problem..
Huh? Say what?
Selenium IDE doesn’t work anymore because of 2 reasons
1. Firefox changes the technique behind the plugins of Firefox. With this new technique firefox becomes more stable and quicker, but it also makes that Selenium IDE doesn’t integrate with Firefox from version 55 and onwards.
2. The selenium project doesn’t have anybody that can port the Selenium project towards the new technique
So this offers a challenge to the many users of Selenium IDE, which tool to use?!
Old idea, new IDE: Meet JOSF
Valori together with Job van den Berg gave birth to JOSF and raised him to be a grown up test tool. JOSF continues the idea behind Selenium IDE, easy test automation without the need to have programming knowledge. With a little help anyone can automate tests. JOSF is a new IDE, based on an already known idea; "Old idea, New IDE"
It’s almost time for JOSF to go and conquer the world at customers. We expect a lot of people, companies and it’s employees to invite JOSF to come and dance!
So come and have a look at JOSF and keep yourself updated!
Already a quick preview: JOSF will let you port your Selenium IDE scripts to JOSF scripts with just a click of a button. Awesome, isn’t it?!
