We've been using watir on the project for a couple of weeks now. It is far superior to JWebUnit which we used previously. Great for testing your GUI througha browser. Ruby makes a good scripting language (I guess that's what it is supposed to be) and using the IE Ole Control as the browser engine for the testing harness is a stroke of brilliant simplicity. Stuff like JWebUnit tries to simulate browsers. Makes all those nasty "doesn't run the javascript right" problems go away.
