BrowserStack

If you have a web property that will be used by people on a variety of hardware, os and browsers, this is a must have. The ability to emulate the user's exact browser/os/device is so important. Something may work in one version of a browser, but not in a slightly different build or on a different os.

Automating a test is very easy when you start with Cypress.io. It is extremely easy to set up and use. Also, debugging a failed test is hassle-free because of its time travel feature. We can do both web UI and API testing with Cypress.io and the only prerequisite is some knowledge in Javascript.

Pros

BrowserStack

  • It shows a true representation of how a website will look on a mobile device.
  • BrowserStack has a good variety of devices and browsers for us to test on.
  • It's easy to access BrowserStack from anywhere that I have Internet access.
  • I can inspect my code and any errors, and also test changes on the device that I am logged into. It makes troubleshooting so much easier.

Cons

BrowserStack

  • It can be a challenge to use it when you're accessing it from within a corporate firewall. In my view, this is the Firewall's problem, but anything that BrowserStack can do to ease that pain will expand its ability to be useful in more locked-down companies.

Cypress.io

  • There are a lot of plugins but several of them have many errors. So Cypress.io should work integrating more features so that people should not rely on these plugins. For example, many people use cypress-cucumber-preprocessor and Cypress.io can start by integrating Gherkin support by default so that reliance in plugins are decreased.

It's simply a must-have tool. As a designer, I have to ensure my work is at least functional in older browsers. I also have to ensure that, when I design for mobile devices, any differences between platforms aren't problematic. BrowserStack allows me to test my work in a fraction of the time, with a whole lot more accuracy.

BrowserStack has a clean and simple to use interface. I like that it has a "straight to the point" type feel to it. I don't log in and wonder where I need to go to do what I need to do. I'm able to log in and quickly begin my testing process of issues and then get out and get back to the client/reader.

I sound like a broken record, but there's not too many negatives to say about BrowserStack. With so many devices nowadays, it's ESSENTIAL to our business to view/test on all browsers to provide the very best customer service. The up-to-date releases always guarantees that the product is supported with any "updates" from any browser or device.

Alternatives Considered

BrowserStack

Compared to other products I've found BrowserStack to have an easy-to-use interface, it offers all the platforms I need and it runs quickly and reliably. The browser plugin is an especially useful feature so I can almost instantly open a URL in one of my BrowserStack presets. It proved useful for basic use at the free price level and for large team use at the higher price level.

Cypress.io

Cypress.io is easy to start with and is independent of other automation tools. Unless we are looking for automating every edge case, Cypress.io can do it without using any plugins. Also, when a test fails, we can travel back to the state in which the test failed (aka time travel feature of Cypress.io), which makes debugging the failure or reporting the failure easy.

Return on Investment

BrowserStack

  • Browserstack has provided us with a quick solution to cross browser compatibility testing at a low cost.
  • Direct impact on ROI is difficult to judge compared to the past, when there were no reliable options for testing across numerous platforms.
  • We had to pull back on our userbase when costs went too high for each individual to access the platform simultaneously.

Cypress.io

  • Flaky tests can be caught easily
  • Regration testing of application with Cypress.io helps to maintain quality of the software product.
