FitNesse vs Selenium: What are the differences?

What is FitNesse? The fully integrated standalone wiki and acceptance testing framework. It is an open source project. The code base is not owned by any company. A lot of information is shared by the FitNesse community. It's extremely adaptable and is used in areas ranging from Web/GUI tests to testing electronic components.

What is Selenium? Web Browser Automation. Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.

FitNesse and Selenium are primarily classified as "Testing Frameworks" and "Browser Testing" tools respectively.

FitNesse and Selenium are both open source tools. Selenium with 15.2K GitHub stars and 5.03K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than FitNesse with 1.38K GitHub stars and 602 GitHub forks.
