Differences Between Manual and Automation Testing

Manual Testing

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

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.
