Discussion on: Protractor is dead, long live Cypress! - Part 1

Hi Stanislav,

Cypress gives you more reliable tests than Selenium. This has nothing to do with how long Selenium already exists and that it is a W3C standard. If the stability of Cypress and Selenium were on par, I would support your argument, but that's not the case.

The development for Protractor ends in December 2022. Although this seems like a long time, you have to be aware that Angular is heavily used for enterprise applications. So, for their dimensions, December 2022 is just "around the corner."

Best wishes,
