Pick one language and one machine to test Web applications. Find the right combo that resonates with developers and stick with it. For example, Selenium was pretty good at testing JavaScript-heavy Web applications. But it really excelled at driving Firefox on either OS X or Linux with Java client libraries.

Java probably wasn’t their favorite programming language, but it’s what most large-scale Web apps were written in.
