Webtest: <http://webtest.canoo.com/webtest/manual/WebTestHome.html>
and associated FF plugin: <http://webtestrecorder.canoo.com/> to help
generate tests -- record once, test many :-) -- are tools I use regularly
for all sizes of engagements.

And JMeter --<http://jakarta.apache.org/jmeter/>-- is nominally for
performance testing, but creating an automated multiple-user simulation
can help uncover memory/connection pool leaks, etc. before deployment...
