Both are good testing tools,Selenium  is open for integration with other tools and frameworks to enhance its capability, but Testing teams need to have good background in programming. The Katalon Studio is integrating necessary frameworks and features for fast test cases execution and creation. It’s also good for testers with limited technical knowledge.


Katalon Studio is an automated testing platform that offers a comprehensive set of features to implement full automated testing solutions for mobile and Web applications. Built on top of the open-source Selenium and Appium frameworks, Katalon Studio allows teams to get started with test automation quickly by reducing the effort and expertise required for learning and integrating these frameworks for automated testing needs.

Selenium is perhaps the most popular automation framework that consists of many tools and plugins for Web application testing. Selenium is known for its powerful capability to support performance testing of Web applications. Selenium is a popular choice in the open-source test automation space, partly due to its large and active development and user community.
