Software or Web Applications testing has been evolving in the last few years. For a long time, Selenium has been the default or only choice for automated testing for teams.
There are some new tools for web based application testing such as Cypress, Puppeteer, services like Rainforestqa.
Each of these tools are more modern, developer friendly and offer lot more tooling and control than Selenium for web applications.
