Selenium vs Panther: What are the differences?

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.

What is Panther? A browser testing and web crawling library for PHP and Symfony. It is a convenient standalone library to scrape websites and to run end-to-end tests using real browsers.

Selenium and Panther can be categorized as "Browser Testing" tools.

Selenium and Panther are both open source tools. Selenium with 17.5K GitHub stars and 5.63K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Panther with 2.01K GitHub stars and 126 GitHub forks.

      What are some alternatives to Panther and Selenium?
      Puma
      Unlike other Ruby Webservers, Puma was built for speed and parallelism. Puma is a small library that provides a very fast and concurrent HTTP 1.1 server for Ruby web applications.
      BrowserStack
      BrowserStack is a leading software testing platform for developers to comprehensively test their websites and mobile applications across 2,000+ real browsers and devices in a single cloud platform—and at scale.
      Karma
      Karma is not a testing framework, nor an assertion library. Karma just launches a HTTP server, and generates the test runner HTML file you probably already know from your favourite testing framework. So for testing purposes you can use pretty much anything you like.
      LambdaTest
      LambdaTest is a highly scalable testing platform on cloud. Mainly it provides Selenium Automation Grid with 2000+ browser-OS combinations, Cypress CLI test coverage to 40+ browser versions, and Mobile app testing infrastructure.
