From project to project, from system to system, changing automation tools that effectively create for automation systems, from month to month, when confronted with different interpretations essentially the same problems, I often thought it was because of my low expertise, but began to notice a pattern between the functionality of the tools and solving problems. Eventually came to the conclusion - automation tools are deeply flawed. On each project we have any way to modify and extend the functionality of the tools. If you remove the generated improvement, automation doesn’t works all in all. I will tell you, what tools contain of, what do we need from them, and what is useless. We’ll summarize and discuss the understanding of the progress in automation testing tools.
