Using Browserling, I never had a bad surprise. this tool is responsive and always offers the latest versions for each browser. I particularly recommend live testing which allows you to directly test the site and generate a screenshot if you have detected a bug or an anomaly in your interface. PS: I will give it 10/10 when recording videos of browsing sessions will be ready.

Best suited where frontend developments are in React and where BDD and TDD test frameworks are to be used. Its syntax is very easy to write and understand. Even the non-programmer can do the initial setup. Not suited when the language you are using is other than Javascript(or Typescript).

  • wdio.conf can contain too much where everything is encapsulated there, like the before and after functions
  • A data provider-like testing would be useful. The only way to input different data into the same test is via a loop
  • everything is needed to be done using the 'browser' object. Can be limiting where you don't have access to the browser depending on where you are in the code

For quicker and safe testing I always choose Browserling. It's also my best tool for responsive testing, as it allows me to resize the window and see how my interface looks in different screen resolutions. Browserling is better than others in manual testing because it has more features than others.

Other tools we selected don't work in our application, it does or doesn't support multiple frames or need more tweaking just to make it works. When testing out WebdriverIO it just works as expected, no need to do such walk around to make it works multiple frames. It also can handle multiple tabs and windows.
