Ranorex Selenium Integration WHY not what

Post by sstowe » Thu Jun 28, 2018 3:15 pm

As I research Ranorex and Selenium integration, I wonder to myself what problem does this solve? Is there any automation goal that I have yet to come across that this solves? I can do what I want so far with Ranorex out of the box. What benefit does this integration serve? Thanks!

Hi,

The most obvious reason is Edge testing, which is impossible to achieve with standard Ranorex tools. The problem is, that Edge supports only WebDriver-based testing. Another scenario is a possibility to run Ranorex web tests on Mac or Linux. Something, which is not doable with Ranorex for windows ;)
