The best recognized tool in the market is Selenium - http://seleniumhq.org/

for Mozilla - Selenium IDE

for IE and other browsers - Selenium RC

we are using the same tool in our office and it is working for almost all functionality.

or you can find many of the tools in the below link

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

If you want to know about VSTT, let me know. I will help you to get start.

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
