It's certainly capable; it being the right choice depends on how much
the app changes over time, though. You may want to look at something
like Selenium where you script at the browser level - but it sounds
like you're doing "make sure a production site stays that way" so
figuring out how the user interaction "works" step-by-step isn't going
to be too costly.
