Pros + cons of various testing frameworks...

I'm in the process of upgrading my site and I want to also improve my testing.  Right now I just have the basic, built-in Rails testing, but would like something better...
I saw Webrat at GoGaRuCo and was very impressed, and I've also heard a great deal about Cucumber and RSpec.
I'd appreciate comments about your experience/recommendations for a testing platform and the tradeoffs involved. FWIW, I'm doing all my development on Linux now
(Kubuntu Hardy/8.04) using Aptana Studio, subversion 1.6, Rails 2.3.2, Active Scaffold, Capistrano 2.1.0, MySQL, and Passenger.
