Playwright is a tool for testing web pages and automating web browsers. It is a Node.js library that allows you to write scripts to automate interactions with websites. You can use Playwright to write automated tests for your web applications, scrape web pages for data, or automate repetitive tasks on the web.
Playwright enables end to end testing for modern web apps.
Playwright supports all modern rendering engines including Chromium, WebKit, and Firefox.

Playwright also supports Mobile Web Testing
Playwright comes with auto wait capabilities so goodbye to tests failing due to wait issues
Playwright creates a browser context for each test. Browser context is equivalent to a brand-new browser profile. This delivers full test isolation with zero overhead. Creating a new browser context only takes a handful of milliseconds.
Save the authentication state of the context and reuse it in all the tests. This bypasses repetitive log-in operations in each test, yet delivers full isolation of independent tests.
Playwright comes with codegen tool that can generate the tests by recording user action.
Playwright also comes with Playwright Inspector that has advance debugging support
