General info

Buster.JS is a JavaScript test framework for node and browsers.

Buster.JS is a new JavaScript testing framework. It does browser testing by automating test runs in actual browsers (think JsTestDriver), as well as Node.js testing. It has a bunch of great features.

mocha-parallel-tests is a test runner for tests written with mocha testing framework.

mocha-parallel-tests allows you to run your tests in parallel and executes each of your test files in a separate process while still maintaining the output of mocha
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Buster.Js is a xUnit style Test Framework

N/A

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

It does browser testing with browser automation, QUnit style static HTML page testing, testing in headless browsers and more front-end components and functionality

Yes

Mocha-parallel-tests Runs in the browser and is used widely to test front-end components and functionality. It can test various DOM elements, front-end functions and so on.
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

It is a Node.js testing toolkit as well which means it can test back-end behaviour and functionality as well as run in a server environment

Yes

Mocha-parallel-tests provides convenient ways of testing the Node server.
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

Mocha, which is the the framework which mocha-parallel-tests runs provides the hooks before(), after(), beforeEach(), and afterEach() to set up preconditions and clean up after your tests
Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

N/A

Yes

Group fixtures are available
Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

Buster.JS ships with Sinon.JS. every test in a test case has a sandbox associated with it, making it easy to mock and stub

Provides Mocking capabilities through third party Libraries like sinon.js, simple-mock and nock
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Grouping is supported and is accomplished by the using a nested 'describe()'
