|TestGen4Web - Firefox record and play back

|TestGen4WebI made this post in a hreview format. We need better user interfaces to write microformatted documents.
TestGen4Web is tool to record/replay user actions in Firefox. It includes a recorder
and a translator
The recorder lets you record and replay Firefox events from within Firefox. The steps/actions/events performed on the HTML page (not on the Firefox XUL elements) are saved in a XML formatted file which can edited, reloaded and replayed. Though events on only the current tab can currently be recorded, I think the developers should soon be extending it
to work across tabs/windows.
The translator converts the recording into scripts which can be used from the command line to test websites in an automated fashion.
This is nice stuff from Spikesource
