  1. Could you explain how you determined these are the “Top and Best Tools” in the industry? I’m curious to know why other tools (like Telerik’s Test Studio) did not make your list, when compared to others that did make your list.

    Some of the tools that you list I have not used, so I have no comparison for those. But I do want to know what criteria you used to come up with your list, and what made them stand above other tools.

  2. Hi Muthu,

    Nice list.

    You may wish to add the following commercial tools:
    SmarteScript (Functional)
    SmarteStudio (Functional)
    SmarteLoad (Performance)

    These tools are from SmarteSoft. I will not offer an opinion on relative merits, as I work for SmarteSoft.


  3. Good list. I like how you divide the list into “free” vs “commercial tools”. But same as Mike above I’m wondering about the criteria you based upon to put tools on the list. Some of my favorite tools were missing here (QTest, TestRail… for example)

  4. You should look up AppLoader as well and consider adding it to the list. It is a commercial load testing tool that creates scenarios through screen capture images captured as you use the application you want to test.
