Cypress evolved end-to-end testing to make it faster and more convenient than it's ever been. It is truly a huge step forward. However, since the summer of 2023, Playwright downloads have skyrocketed and for good reason. At the current trajectory, downloads will surpass those of Cypress by the end of 2024. Why so much interest?

In this session, delivered by someone who works closely with both frameworks, we will examine:

• What is the history of Cypress and Playwright?

• What are the primary differences between Cypress and Playwright?

• Which should you choose for your next end-to-end testing project?

• What other resources exist that can help you decide?
