What categories of tools we should be looking for while thinking the tester way ?

What makes sense for a tester to have an extended support in terms of tools ........

Questions to ask -

  • do we really need them ?
  • will they help me perform better in this situation ?
  • are these tools scripting ideas & inputs ?
  • are they able to "think" cognitively like you and me ?
  • can they really unearth bugs ?
  • will they increase my productivity ?

Specific to Automation tools

  • Are they able to let me explore the inputs ?
  • am I experimenting while doing testing ?
  • can I make them work they way I'd want them to work ?
  • Are they actually doing what I wanted them to do while executing a script ?
