Selenium vs Kobiton: What are the differences?
Developers describe Selenium as "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. On the other hand, Kobiton is detailed as "A mobile cloud platform that enables users to perform manual or automated testing". It enables developers and testers to perform automated and manual testing of mobile apps and websites on real devices Modern DevOps and Quality environments require apps to be tested on hundreds of device/OS/browser combinations. Managing an in-house device-lab is expensive, resource intensive, restrictive and very manual.
Kobiton allows for instant provisioning of real devices for testing with automated or manual scripts, and also allows current on-premise devices to be plugged in to form a holistic testing cloud..
Selenium and Kobiton belong to "Browser Testing" category of the tech stack.
