    Re: which is better

    Tough question
    But since you posted this in the SilkTest forum, I guess your answer is SilkTest
    Otherwise, maybe you really meant to post your question in the General or Automated Testing forum.

    My final answer: Evaluate each one of these test tools and see which one best fit your needs. Find out which one works very well with your application(s). All the tools you mentioned are supposed to be very popular and are all good. Good luck and take your time evaluating and picking your "better" tool.

    Although it is tough question but Ray Robinson has done good work on it. Find attached a comparison document on automated tools which might be useful for you.

    Re: which is better

    It depends how technical is your backgound. I have used all three and for web testing I 'd put them in the following order.

    1. SilkTest
    2. Robot
    3. WinRunner

    Re: which is better

    Well its a big question and lot of factors.

    Kind of application, web based, windows and Unix
    Expertise and experience of testers - good programmers or not.
    Level of automation needed.
    I have worked with all these three tools and recommended these three for different application. Feel free to send an email to sree@proactiveqa.com for any assistance in this matter.

    I think, the comparison document which I have attached gives a clear picture about the usage of various testing tools for various type of applications. For different functionalities there is a trade off.
