It has support for mocks and stubs and runs in the browser, or via the command line
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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

Yes

One is able to write acceptance tests which are used to look at functionality from a user's perspective. It is able to look at pages in browser (Chrome, Firefox or PhpBrowser)

Yes

It tests front-end functionality and can run in the browser
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

It supports back-end tests, by writing functionaltests one can be able to test server behaviour

N/A

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Enhance PHP has built-in support for mocks and stubs. You can set up expectations and supply predictable return values
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes
