A few days ago a came across "Silenium" 
( which could be worth having a look 
at it too.

I don't have practical experiences with any of the mentioned tools, but heard 
good things about Canoo WebTest and Paul's blog is encouraging.

What I would really love to see is a GUI (Eclipse plug-in) to write the tests, 
at least the most parts of them. And this GUI should describe the tests in some 
well know programming language or in XML. AFAIK, any of the named alternatives 
provides such a tool.

Last thought, it would be great to have an extensive testsuite, but as always, 
somebody has to work on this.

Alfred, I can't help you with the actual work, but if you  work on this and if 
you want you can get my feedback on your plans and your work and I would also 
take care that your tests don't stay too long in Bugzilla ;-)
