It's used by the jQuery project to test its code and plugins
QUnit is especially useful for regression testing:
Whenever a bug is reported,
write a test that asserts the existence of that particular bug.
Then fix it and commit both.
Every time you work on the code again, run the tests.
If the bug comes up again - a regression -
you'll spot it immediately and know how to fix it,
because you know what code you just changed.
Having good unit test coverage makes safe refactoring easy and cheap.
You can run the tests after each small refactoring step
and always know what change broke something.
QUnit is similar to other unit testing frameworks like JUnit,
and helps with testing code in the browser,
e.g. with its stop/start facilities for testing asynchronous code.
