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

Yes

xUnit.net is part of the xUnit family of frameworks

No

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

Yes

You can test various front-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework

Yes

Yes, since it is also easily hooked to 'testing' package it is used to test front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test various back-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework

Yes

Yes it can also be used to test back-end components and functionality
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

It contains class fixtures which are setup once pertest class

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.

Yes

xUnit.net contains collection fixtures which allow you to share context among many 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)

Yes

Its 'mock' package has a mechanism for easily writing mock objects that are used in place of real objects
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Using the 'suite' package developers can build a test suite as a struct build teardown and setup methods as well as testing methods on the struct then run them with 'go test'
