RE: Selenium vs QTP

I have a question that has been in my mind for a while., and was hoping someone who has had experience of both Selenium and QTP may be able to answer. I know this is based on peoples own opinions, but what are the differences between using QTP and using Selenium?

Basically, my understanding of test automation has come from using Selenium….mainly because it is free and didn’t require my company to invest the money in QTP. With QTP costing so much money, I’d be interested to hear anyone’s opinions on what justifies the outlay? It’s something I may need to delve into further in the future but would be interested in peoples thoughts.

selenium + Difficult to configure,medium hard to code, as such no in built features, need to integrate with other tools to get reports reports etc, No Quick online support , we can raise bugs but there is no time when they will be solved , Not much Stable API’s when tool started

Thanks Amitjain, appreciate you taking the time to answer that for me. On the flipside of the coin, are there any things that Selenium is better at than QTP in your opinion?
