MSW (Mock Service Worker) is a powerful library for mocking HTTP requests in development and testing environments. It intercepts requests made by your application and allows you to define custom responses, enabling you to simulate various scenarios without relying on actual backend services. MSW is easy to set up and configure, providing a flexible and robust solution for mocking API interactions.

Compared to alternatives like MirageJS or Nock, MSW stands out for its simplicity and ease of use. It seamlessly integrates with popular testing frameworks like Jest and Cypress, making it a preferred choice for developers looking to streamline their testing processes.
