And there are other tools in the same ecosystem for specific requirements that people opt for.. Selenium and Appium have come a long way since the project started. A lot of developments have happened since Selenium 4 was announced during the State of the Union Keynote by Simon Stewart and Manoj Kumar ranging from relative locators to Selenium Grid advancements and WebDriver BiDi too.
