In the past few years, Cypress and Playwright have become major contenders for market share, and it’s no surprise why. Both frameworks have helpful features like automatic waiting, cross-browser support, and thorough tracing.

However, each has its own distinctive edge. Cypress aims for an intuitive visual experience with its browser window, while Playwright targets speed and multi-language support.

Rather than compile lists of feature comparisons, this match-up will be a battle of the code! Round for round, Filip and Andy will implement small coding challenges in JavaScript using Cypress and Playwright respectively, and then they will compare and contrast their solutions.
