Opkey recorder for chrome (chrome addon)

Opkey Recorder for Chrome is a Chrome Extension that swiftly records actions and generates automation test scripts for applications like SAP, Salesforce, Workday, etc.

Easily add, delete, and move test steps. Pause and resume recording as needed. Stop the recording session and save recorded actions along with objects.
