When we say “automated testing” we are referring to one of three types of tests:
- Selenium Tests – custom scripts for automated interaction with the browser via Selenium tool
- Screenshot Tests – automated launching of browser and capture of images of the web page
- Automated Live Tests – when a Live Test is run via the API for automated interaction
“Manual testing” refers to running a Live Test and manually interacted with the browser to test functionality of your webpage.
Automated minutes are counted on your plan whereas Manual Live Tests are unlimited once you have a paid subscription. Free Trial users will have Manual Live Tests counted against their trial minutes.
