Like UI testing, Web pages testing is a question that we often hear.
For a lot of people, this kind of testing is impossible – well, let’s
say very hard to do -, so they don’t do it.

Difficult doesn’t mean impossible and there are now several good testing tools. The most difficult to test is the behaviour of our code across several kind of browsers. Each of them interpret HTML and Javascript as they
want so our beautiful code can be sometimes unreadable. If we want to perform a real test, we need to test our code inside the browser. I discover that this is exactly what Selenium does. This tool was originally created by people at ThoughtWorks, so I presume that it was designed with agile testing in mind. I’ll have a look at it in the following days.
