"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

for IE and other browsers - Selenium RC

Agreed with suveer_patil

There are more when it comes to web applications, you may be need to focus on Load Testing , Performance Testing, Functionality Testing, Usability testing, Interface testing , Compatibility testing, 6) Security testing , Link Checking, HTML Validations etc:

The above given links are of course useful and sufficient. But i would like add a little piece of additional.l information here.

The web test tool i ever tried is VSTT. This is not a Free / open source, but unlikely the QTP, you can try a free trail  from here.
Microsoft® Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite Trial

It has very easy record and play back feature. plus data binding , validating and all the features you wanted to do with a web test.

If you are looking for java based tools , you may refer

Depends on what you want to do an ehat browsers, but VBScript is free... You can write your own VBScript to interact with the DOM and manipulate and test your web app as much as you would like.

LeanFT is a relatively new offering from HP, and it has been popular with former Selenium users, so it might be a good fit for you. http://www.itcentralstation.com/product_reviews/hp-leanft-review-33982-by-johann-gietl
