Limitations of Selenium WebDriver

Even though Selenium is the most popular automation testing tool, it has got below limitations.

  1. We can only test web applications. We can not test desktop based applications. 
  2. We can test mobile applications but we need to use the Appium for that.
  3. We can not automate the CAPTCHA 
  4. We can not automate the complex control like Flash, Silver light Components, Applet controls, native window dialogs etc
  5. We often encounter issues like Selenium not launching latest browsers due to incompatibility issues. In such scenarios, we have to downgrade the browser in order to automate it.
