TestGen4Web

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.

I made this post in a hreview format.  We need better user interfaces to write microformatted documents.

For Internet Explorer, I recommend iMacros

For testing with IE (V6 + V7), our company uses "iMacros". It's a very good software. Also, iOpus provides GREAT support.
