    Developer is paid a LOT more than a tester.

    Tester is considered "entry level" job, then you get promoted to developer. If you've been stuck at tester for 4 years, there may be something wrong with you or your company.

    Both streams have their own area of work. According to me, Software tester is good then developer. Software tester job has more scope now a days. You can get a higher post ion this field with good salary package.

    Developers get paid more, but not much!!!

    my brother is a tester and complains about it all the time

    its a developer because a tester can only test if and only if a developer has developed software.That's y a developer gets paid more.Though both of them have almost equal pressure in their jobs,a developer has some times more to do
