[Webtest] Why do you use WebTest? ;-)

Hi all,

why do you use WebTest rather than some other test tool (commercial or 
open source)?

Of course I have some ideas on this question ;-) but as WebTest 
committer I'm surely not objective when comparing WebTest to others. 
While presenting WebTest I've already encountered difficulties to 
convince that it was the tool of choice. I think that it occurs 
particularly when people don't have any real experience of automated web 
application tests and therefore can't understand "real" arguments. From 
your experience as WebTest user, what would you say to persuade someone 
wanting to start test automation for a webapp to use WebTest rather than 
something else?
