Description from store Katalon Recorder is the most UI-friendly and simplest extension for Record and Playback on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. A perfect Selenium IDE alternative as your daily drive web recorder. Katalon Recorder will make your test automation work a lot easier: - Enjoy fastest execution speed compared to other extensions with Selenium 3 core engine. - Automate the repetitive tasks on browsers, such as generating reports, filling forms, automating games, etc. - Use original Selenium IDE commands (Selenese), plus block statements if...elseIf...else...endIf and while...endWhile. Testing file input control is supported. - Make use of multiple locator types including XPath & CSS. - Import test data from CSV files for data-driven testing. - Import scripts from Selenium IDE to existing project in Katalon Recorder - Test your new features before handing your work over to the QA team - Run synthetic testing to monitor the functionality of web applications - Shareable reports with visual dashboards and charts easily with logs, screenshots capturing, with historical data and analytics from Katalon TestOps. - Supporting the legacy Selenium IDE's commands and extension scripts (AKA user-extensions.js) for developing custom locator builders and actions. - Exporting Selenium WebDriver scripts in various formats and frameworks. You can export recorded tests to the following supported languages and frameworks: Node New Relic Synthetics, Python App Dynamics, Java JUnit, Java TestNG, Python unittest, C# MSTest, C# NUnit, Java WebDriver RC +JUnit, JSON Dynatrace Synthetics, Typescript Potractor, Robot framework, Ruby Rspec, JavaScript WebDriver.io, XML, JavasScript Puppeteer, JSON Puppeteer Why Katalon Recorder? Unlike Selenium IDE, the recording capability of Katalon Recorder is powerful on major web browsers: Chrome, Firefox, and IE. This extension was the champion project of the Katalon Studio Hackathons contest. Katalon Automation Recorder was developed to support users who no longer be able to record and playback automation tests using the old-fashioned Selenium IDE or users of popular open source frameworks looking for a handy recorder. Katalon Recorder can be integrated with other Katalon solutions (Katalon Studio and Katalon TestOps) for advanced test generation, reporting, and test orchestration needs.

Latest reviews

  • (2022-05-24) Yudistryan Izhar: I thought it was improvement of Selenium IDE, turns out it just broke as hell. Much more difficult than Selenium. Cannot import to Katalon Studio, always error. Some commands are just not working.
  • (2022-05-10) StudioEmbriao: Very powerful!
  • (2022-02-11) りゅうき: Update 5.7.3 It does not start Please respond as soon as possible.
  • (2022-01-28) Franz Dayrit: Update 5.7.0 has broken textfield. Cannot edit command, target and value.
  • (2022-01-28) Igor Ustinov: Версия 5.7.0 выпущена без тестирования с критическими багами, не позволяющими работать с расширением. Невозможно вернуться к предыдущей рабочей версии. Очень плохой UX. Version 5.7.0 was released without testing with critical bugs preventing the extension from working. It is not possible to go back to a previous working version. Very bad UX.
  • (2022-01-28) Vadim Kolosov: Must be a great app, but unfortunately I cannot use it - my keyboard is not working! Cannot type anything in a table Command Target Value. Nor delete or erase. Rebooted my laptop. Didn't help. Latest Chrome and Windows OS. Thought report a bug, but was directed to the forum and had to register to report, which I don't like. And I couldn't find similar problem reported on the forum through search.
  • (2021-12-14) York: Is there a bitcoin miner attached? When opening a new chrome tab, Katalon recorder force my fans to spin at max. When inspecting chrome task manager, it says the new tab consumes 100% CPU. Removing 1 extension at a time, I landed on Katalon recorder being the root cause. Removed it right away to have my PC return to normal.
  • (2021-12-07) Aman Kumar: It just limits you. Too many restrictions. Can't even test the product due to daily limits. Uninstalling it.
  • (2021-11-30) Dennis Thompson: The extension is easy to use and fit my immediate need. I just wish the extension supported custom variables so I didn't have to edit every single test with my data every time I want to run a suite. I attempted to use the full Katalon Studio and that's way more involved to get working.
  • (2021-11-26) Şahin Kasap: Working very nicely, I needed to improve code since some id's of the elements was changing, but that is not the problem of this extension. Thanks
  • (2021-11-18) Vipul Priyadarshi: The devs keep trying to ruin user experience after each update. Unnecessary changes the UI, asking for review while I'm in between something very important. PATHETIC!!!
  • (2021-11-18) Jose Mendoza: La recomiento, una consulta como integro el katalo studio lo que hice aqui
  • (2021-11-13) Jesse .james: You can open them, but is it possible to export the tests as selenium IDE files?
  • (2021-11-12) Arpit Pawar: Best tool for selenium script
  • (2021-11-02) Matias: Work a little bit more on video tutorials. Your documentation is either outdated or doesn't seem to work when I'm trying to apply it. I have wasted a pretty good part of the day in trying to get a simple thing to work and can't do it.
  • (2021-11-02) Roninn: Easy to use and quick executions and very efficient
  • (2021-09-29) Wele Yam: how to export the test case to java & testNG?
  • (2021-09-29) zaman virk: Great tool for productivity
  • (2021-09-17) blenjamin: Works great and makes my job a lot simpler
  • (2021-09-13) Marco Evangelista: great tool, simple to use, intuitive and, moreover, free. A+++
  • (2021-09-09) luchschenF: Не работает без регистрации
  • (2021-09-01) Will S.: Hello, I been very happy with this automation tool its just what i've been looking for in building a robust test automation regression test suite environment.
  • (2021-08-27) Diego Alejandro mejía E: Great tool, very intuitive, I have no specific formation in coding but managed to solve the problem I had, THANKS!
  • (2021-07-30) Brucce Soares: Ótima ferramenta para criar casos de testes em sistemas web! Mas, depende muito de fazer o download do Katalon Studio para desktop. Somente a extensão no navegador contém muitos bugs. Se você copiar os comandos de um cenário que está funcionando e colar em um segundo cenário este não vai funcionar, você precisa criar novamente usando a ferramenta de gravação. E também tem o bug do comando type que as vezes digita e as vezes não. Você precisa sempre usar o comando setText para inserir valores nos campos. O problema é que a ferramenta de gravação usa o comando type por padrão, então depois de gravar o cenário você precisa corrigir tudo manualmente.
  • (2021-07-29) Guillermo Rossney @ Puppis: Excelente, me permitió capturar interacciones que otros productos similares no capturaban.
  • (2021-07-26) Jason 3D: Pretty easy to use, hoping dev will keep updating the webdriver functionalities. Also it will be nice to be able to run target test suites within command window for better test suites management. Ex. instead of gotolabel have something like gotosuite or gototestcase
  • (2021-07-23) Eric Sanfilip: The record and click works great. I like how I can have multiple test suites (basically folders) and then individual test cases under those suites. You need this this if you are doing repetitive things all day. I also like the screen shot feature. I can run through a loop of different scenarios and take a screen shot for each scenario so instead of manually looking at the page after each run through, I have 20 screen shots I have saved locally and I can even print out.
  • (2021-07-20) WASI AHMED: I really loved it, it make so many tasks very easy.
  • (2021-07-08) Melwyn Mark DSouza: Easy to Learn and suffcient features... still learning though
  • (2021-07-08) Guy Mason: Great web automation tool, great Selenium and iMacros replacement. The developers support this tool very well and unlike some greedy companies, haven't ruined this product by crippling it for all but paid users.
  • (2021-07-05) Aviel Gergel: I was shoked! this is one of the best web automation extentions ever made. when i saw that there is a code export in different programming languages, i was speechless....
  • (2021-07-02) Crystal Rhodes: Impossible to write and evaluate expressions to compare between strings. Oftentimes, the extension does not append commands to a test case through recording -> have to close the window and reopen it. Overall, I had a very difficult time setting things up. Extension is not intuitive for developers at all when it comes to end-to-end testing. Useless extension!
  • (2021-07-02) tushar patil: very handy tool, saves coding time by generating scripts in different languages.
  • (2021-06-12) baljeet ayuush: if you're looking for a Selenium IDE replacement, this is it
  • (2021-06-12) becky: A pretty useful tool. Definitely is the next best thing for Selenium IDE
  • (2021-06-08) Minh Thanh To: Awesome recorder. Come in very handy in learning automation testing.
  • (2021-06-04) Keith Hattie: I used to love Katalon, but over the past month or so, the multitude of pop-ups is starting to get old fast. If this keeps up, I will be switching to a different automation software that doesn't harass the end user with a million pop-ups.
  • (2021-05-22) Amber Thomas: I love this extension it has made it easier for me to screen record projects and is not complicated at all I wish i had downloaded it sooner to be honest
  • (2021-05-20) Batuhan Aktaş: Çok güzel bir eklenti teşekkürler
  • (2021-03-25) Bilbo 248: Ok pour le record mais impossible d'importer. NUL
  • (2021-03-03) A K: very basic
  • (2021-01-13) Michael Wiejowski: I couldn't figure out why my chrome was crashing for a few days... turns out it was this extension. Strange that it is somehow using resources while supposedly inactive? Crashes occured on google pages (google search, hangouts, maps).
  • (2020-12-16) Attila Nagy: I have tried UI.Vision RPA and Chromium Browser Automation they both useless and user unfriendly, just wasting time with trying those, but this app is great. Not sure why the asterisk didnt disappear after the name of the Test suite/case after logging in to cloud, also trying to figure out it is possible to bind a keystroke to a test case, i guess i try Katalon Studio.
  • (2020-11-28) Ken Chen: 点击 录制 什么反应都没有,是否说明下雨Chrome浏览器的哪些版本可以正常使用
  • (2020-11-18) gennady tamanov: Не работают стрелки вниз и вверх
  • (2020-11-10) Alan Barboza: This extension do not have any feature to make an export or backup local, it doesn't generate an backu p file, so if you need it. Choose other one extension.
  • (2020-10-26) Armstrong Knight: Must try. NO coding required. However, if you start your recording. Make the first page start.me because you can custom list your links for katalon recorder to launch from. These two are powerful tools
  • (2020-09-10) kabirbazar: very good بسیار عالی مناسب برای خریدهای سرخطی ..مفید تست شد.خوب
  • (2020-09-08) Kenming Wang: 讚!
  • (2020-08-24) Satoru Goto: This extension helps a lot to make Python Selenium scripts with ease !
