We have previously spoken about executing automated tests at the appropriate layer of your application. In this radar, we want to be very specific - we recommend against exhaustive browser based testing. Web browser automation tools like Selenium have encouraged widespread automated testing through the browser. While these tests continue to have their place in a test portfolio, most teams find that executing the bulk of tests through the browser creates a slow and fragile test suite.
