Introduction to Cypress

Cypress is a front-end tool that tests anything that runs in a browser. QA engineers and developers use it to write automated tests, and it comes with a ton of functionality that makes our job of writing tests easier and more reliable. Cypress heavily optimizes end-to-end testing to solve many common problems of the other testing solutions. Moreover, it can test a website built in any language, even if it uses heavy JavaScript. It can also run on popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Electron.
