- Selenium requires high skill sets in order to automate tests more effectively.
- Since Selenium is open source software, you have to rely on community forums to get your technical issues resolved.
- We can?t perform automation tests on web services like SOAP or REST using Selenium.
- We should know at least one of the supported programming languages to create tests scripts in Selenium WebDriver.
- It does not have built-in Object Repository like UTF/QTP to maintain objects/elements in centralized location. However, we can overcome this limitation using Page Object Model.
