Watir, Web App Testing in Ruby

clipped from

Automated testing that doesn’t hurt

Watir is a simple open-source library for automating web browsers. It allows you to write
tests that are easy to read and easy to maintain. It is optimized for
simplicity and flexibility.

Watir drives browsers the same way people do.
It clicks links, fills in forms, presses buttons. Watir also checks results,
such as whether expected text appears on the page.

Why Watir?
