BackstopJS is a visual regression testing tool for web applications. It allows developers to compare visual differences between different versions of a website or web application, helping to catch unintended changes in the UI caused by code updates. BackstopJS captures screenshots of web pages and compares them pixel by pixel, highlighting any discrepancies.

Compared to manual visual testing, BackstopJS automates the process, saving time and ensuring consistent results. It provides a detailed visual diff report, making it easier to identify and fix visual bugs. Alternative solutions like Percy and Applitools offer similar visual testing capabilities but may have different features and pricing models.
