With a sudden increase in AngularJS websites current market demand is moving towards Protractor for automation. Now before we proceed further we first need to understand what exactly is Protractor?
Protractor is an end to end testing framework specially designed to perform automation testing on AngularJS based web applications. Protractor API works as a wrapper over the most powerful WebDriver API and is built on top of WebDriverJS that uses native events and browser specific drivers to interact with web based application as a normal user would do.
There's a massive increase in locator strategies in Protractor which also allows you to test AngularJS specific elements including the existing locator that we get from WebDriver API without configuring or putting any extra effort. Waits and Syncs are handled in a more effective manner so we need to to worry about sync issues as well.
