As far as I can tell, while there are several, there are none that are actually Just Work good. It seems to be an area still in flux, people coming up with an open source way to do that that is reliable and easy to use and just works.

The main division in current approaches seems to be between: 1) Trying to automate _actual browsers_ so you know you've tested it in the real browsers you care about (the headaches of this are obvious, but people are doing it!), and 2) Using a headless javascript browser that can be run right on the server, to test general javascriptyness but without testing idiosyncracies of particular browsers (I would lean towards this one myself, I'm willing to give up what it gives up for something that works a lot simpler with less headaches).
