General info

tap-producing test harness for node and browsers.

Tape API is a small superset of the node core assert module

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.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It does support xUnit output

Yes

Buster.Js is a xUnit style Test Framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can write tests for any part of your front-end code to test any component or functionality

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
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

With tape you can test any back-end component, behaviour and functionality after all it supports TAP (Test Anything Protocol)

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

No

Tape contains only the essential features for making assertions on your code but there is a package called redtape that extends tape to give you beforeEach and afterEach functionality

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.

No

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.

No

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)

No

Tape is a minimalistic framework that provides only essential features to make your assertions about your code

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
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Tape contains only the essential features for making assertions on your code
