I would be rolling out many incremental updates/features to my website and I want to make sure no existing functionality is affected.

How can I automate this process? I know there are some tools that test the UI but am not sure which ones?

I would like to run a sanity test every week and be able to know if anything got broken.

Selenium is good for automating this


Please take a look at CasperJS that utilizes PhantomJS (a headless browser), especially the tester module for unit and functional testing!

You can do amazing things like screenshots of every aspect/position of your pages and continually run your very specific tests.

Nice example: Take a look at screenshot-based regression testing.
