Don’t use Webrat anymore

Webrat is a testing Framework for Ruby. In general it is pretty cool, but DEAD! The last version was released more than 2 years ago. And there are only 200 GEMs referencing it.

The newest PullRequests on GitHub are 1 year old! Not an active project! Don’t use dead projects!

I moved my tests to Capybara. This project is more active. VersionEye shows that the newest version was released 1 month ago and there are almost 2300 GEMs referencing it.

And the newest PullRequests on GitHub are only 4 days old. That all shows me that it’s still active and I feel better if I know that there developers fixing bugs :-)
