General info

Crosscheck is a JavaScript unit-testing framework capable of emulating multiple browser environments

Crosscheck is an open source testing framework for verifying your in-browser JavaScript. It helps you ensure that your code will run in many different browsers such as Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox, but without needing installations of those browsers. The only thing you need is a Java Virtual Machine.

Standalone test stubs and mocks for JavaScript. Works with any unit testing framework.

Sinon.js is a great library when you want to unit test your code with supports spies, stubs, and mocks. The library has cross browser support and also can run on the server using Node.js.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

Yes

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

No

Yes

Sinon.js is a good library for unit testing your front-end code and has cross browser support
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Crosscheck is used to verify in-browser JavaScript and is a headless test framework, it tests back-end components and functionality

Yes

Sinon.js can run on node.js to test back-end components and server-side behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

N/A

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

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.

N/A

Licence

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)

N/A

Yes

SinonJS is basically a library that we can use to create object mocks for unit testing
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
