Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Could you please edit this question to give more information? What kind of applications are you trying to test? What do you want in a tool? (Easy to learn, good online resources, cost...). Without more information, this question will likely be closed for being either opinion-based or too broad. – Kate Paulk Feb 15 '17 at 12:26
