Selenium vs Geb: What are the differences?

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; Geb: A browser automation solution. It brings together the power of WebDriver, the elegance of jQuery content selection, the robustness of Page Object modelling and the expressiveness of the Groovy language.It can be used for scripting.

Selenium and Geb can be primarily classified as "Browser Testing" tools.

Selenium and Geb are both open source tools. Selenium with 15.3K GitHub stars and 5.05K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Geb with 972 GitHub stars and 217 GitHub forks.
