And so, it happened!

Playwright surpassed Cypress in weekly NPM downloads.

But that's not all.

Since 2023, three main trends emerged:

  • Cypress' growth slowed,
  • Playwright exploded higher,
  • Selenium significantly dropped.

Of course, it's only the JavaScript versions. Both Playwright and Selenium also support other languages, e.g. C#, Java and Python, which are not reflected here.

But it's a strong indicator of what tool is becoming testers' choice.

And if you want to learn more, Filip Hric and Jonathan Canales had an interesting discussion about it.

So, with that in mind, enjoy the 225th issue! 🙂
