The software testing community has come through many interesting trends through the year 2017. These trends mainly include the newly introduced practices in software testing. Trends like adopting newer test automation tools & practices and DevOps are found to be usually followed, which in turn has resulted to increase in automation being performed on various web applications. While some tools are still facing issues like managing the environments as well as test data, shortened release schedules and lack of time for proper testing.
- Working together with manual & automation tools: It’s true that automating every single thing sounds like interesting and easy for everyone for once, but, in reality automation makes it difficult to face challenges in complex test environments and data and ever shortening delivery cycles.
- Emerging mobile test automation: As compared to earlier years, we can clearly see a shift of software world towards Mobile applications, away from web and desktop applications. The same can be said as the reason for the introduction of Test Automation in mobile applications testing in order to shorten time-to-market needs of software organizations.

For an application to succeed, there are various factors involved like, ease of access, performance, smooth and secure support. The financial applications possess multi-tier functionality to cater thousands of concurrent user sessions. Such applications are integrated with complex business workflows, Bill pay utility as they involve Real time transactions at a very high rate. Therefore, the transaction processor involves millions of transaction per second making it a complex system.
Testing of such banking and financial applications becomes crucial in order to evaluate its reliability and proficiency. Growing customer expectations have led to the increased complex financial services that has made testing an important affair.
Due to the involvement of complex functionalities in the banking and financial applications, using one or two software testing techniques is not enough.

QA plays a very crucial role in delivering quality software into the market and also helps in organization overall growth.
i) Regression ensures quality in less time: One of the most important methodologies in web software testing is Regression Testing. It a type of software testing which confirms a recent change in code does not affect any existing features.
ii) Automation saves manual time: Test cases can be converted into test scripts(automated) during application development. This helps in increasing overall test coverage along with reducing the manual efforts. It also increases the Reusability of test scripts when the OS or device changes.

Numerous browsers, multi-tiered architecture and intricate web technologies together put a twist in the working, as does the cost to acquire the tool that facilitates automation.
Ease of Use
Selenium offers an intuitive, user-friendly interface for creation and execution of test suites.
The real task of writing and maintaining scripts with Selenium is also really relaxed. The tool allows ascertaining elements from the browser, making it easy to write the tests using the specific identifiers of the element.
Selenium is a powerful tool that covers almost all the aspects of web functionality testing. The scope is also increased by the means of various add-on tools. Selenium IDE allows the users to navigate their application in Firefox and record their actions forming tests.
