Selenium vs WebdriverIO: 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.
Selenium and WebdriverIO belong to "Browser Testing" category of the tech stack.
Selenium and WebdriverIO are both open source tools. It seems that Selenium with 14.9K GitHub stars and 4.97K forks on GitHub has more adoption than WebdriverIO with 5.04K GitHub stars and 1.44K GitHub forks.
MIT, Typeform, and Bukalapak are some of the popular companies that use Selenium, whereas WebdriverIO is used by SuperAgendador.com, Soluto, and Shelf. Selenium has a broader approval, being mentioned in 777 company stacks & 442 developers stacks; compared to WebdriverIO, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
