Re: Browser Testing with Seleniumby

So I would be interested in an opinion on how far Selenium could replace the existing approaches and if it is a viable suggestion for effectively increasing e2e test coverage and foster explorative testing?
Did you read about phantomjs? (which is the actual model)
Basically is create a no-frontend browser and run a set of steps on json, such tests can be changed/improved in a convenient way.
The issue as usual with actual approach is the absolute leak of documentation, if odoo dedicate some time to explain for idiots some great ideas a lot of people should impact better in the community.
IMHO selenium is great, and it does the job perfectly, but I prefer a solution embeded in the system with no graphical needs.
If I personally dedicate something to odoo it should be in create more tests, and improve the output of actual ones (which are very cryptical first times).
My 2 cents.
