Manual testing is testing of the software where tests are executed manually by a QA Analyst. The purpose of manual testing is to catch bugs and feature issues before a software application goes live. Manual testing is a time consuming testing because it is done by humans and there is a chance of human errors.
Automation testing is a type of testing in which we take the help of tools (automation) to perform the testing. It helps testers execute more test cases and improve test coverage. There is no chance of any human errors.
Both Manual and Automation Testing have pros and cons, and choosing between these two depends on the project requirements, time and so on. After you read these differences between manual and automation testing, which one do you prefer? Manual Testing or Automation Testing?
