Website Visual Monitoring and Testing Platform
A visual regression testing tool that analyzes your html and css to explain why changes have occurred.
Chromatic is a screenshot testing & review tool for UI components and component libraries. It seamlessly integrates into your PR and CI workflow to notify you of UI regressions. Perfect for Storybook.
PhantomJS/SlimerJS-based tool which checks your current layout constantly against a reference image you have provided in the past. If your layout breaks (or simply changes - CSS Critic can't tell) your tests fail.
A simple API to quantify and visualize differences
Differencify is a library for visual regression testing by comparing your local changes with reference screenshots of your website. It is built on top of chrome headless using Puppeteer.

Selenium-based testing suite with API/UI functionality and full-featured tests.
All in one tool that provides a visual editor (a free Chrome recorder extension) which allows you to record operations and assertions right in your web browser. Run the tests on a regular basis via their site.
A command-line tool that runs test assertions based on computed CSS of your site, comparing them to expected style definitions.
Built on top of PhantomCSS, adding new features like annotations for each screenshot and a viewer to compare and choose the correct screenshots.
Cloud based software testing tool which integrates with many testing toolsets out there (including WebdriverIO/WebdriverCSS), providing additional functionality and an UI/API for managing test results.
A test-runner for image comparisons that is built on top of Blink-Diff
Ruby based tool to automatically test the design of your webapp.
A wrapper around Nightmare.js to look at your UI changes in prod before deploying to prod.

Command line tool built to find image-based differences between website updates. Based on Succss.
Web-based visual regression testing tool that combines screenshot images with DOM and CSS verifications. Does not require coding. Based on visual comparisons.
UI/API interface for managing results of WebdriverIO/WebdriverCSS tests.
All-in-one tool promising quick set up with no test writing. Simply plug in your desired URLs and siteeffect will start watching for visual changes.
Spectre is a web application to diff screenshots. It's heavily influence by VisualReview, BackstopJS and Wraith. Read more about how we use it at Friday in our blog post: How we do visual regression testing.
Command line tool built to find image-based differences between website updates. Succss relies on npm and is installed globally.
VisualReview's goal is to provide a productive and human-friendly workflow for testing and reviewing your web application's layout for any regressions.
VisWiz.io is a flexible visual regression testing service. Easy to use SDK/API. Use together with your preferred testing framework. Get results on email, in Slack or via webhooks.
This plugin is an automatic visual regression-testing tool for WebdriverIO. It was inspired by James Cryer's awesome project called PhantomCSS.
At it’s most basic, Visual regression testing is a series of tests that can run through your site, taking screenshots and comparing those screenshots against a baseline, alerting you when things change.
In this talk I will discuss how I converted PhantomCSS, a tool for visual regression testing, and integrated it into our workflow. I will also cover the challenges we faced which ranged from integrating the tests into our CI, test execution taking too long, ability to browse the test results and notifying developers about failed regressions.
