    BrowserStack

    Browserstack is a perfect tool for cross browser and parallel testing. It works completely on cloud, so it doesnt require any additional app or local resource to run tests. It has bit of learning curve so it can be difficult for a beginner to use the tool. It is pricey so not many companies be able to afford it. But for the features it support, price is totally justified. UI is very user friendly, but the live monitoring animations are pretty laggy and jerky. Overall its a great product

    Postman

    Postman is very good for easy entry into testing. Thanks to snippets it is easy to use, but also provides a lot [of] possibilities for testing thanks to the in-line editor. Easy to use on multiple environments (versioning) thanks to sets of environment variables. The Collections view can get very full with time and it is not possible to reuse or link requests so that they have always been copied and maintained manually for each copy if changes have to be applied.

    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.

    Postman

    • It has opened a door for me to explore more out of it, as it is associated with so many APIs that I never felt any difficulty in finding the right API template, which are well organized and easily available.
    • It is very secure to use and provides great services which are user-friendly.
    • Due to this software I have got rid of the excessive emails and the slack channels, Now I am using my own private API and even it give me an option to produce my personal Postman’s API Builder from its Private API Network and this features has shared my excessive workload.

    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.

    Postman

    • Wherever you need to automate tests that involve database verification or rely on data from databases, Postman is less suitable.
    • Postman's disc usage is extremely high, and it occasionally causes the computer to fade.
    • It doesn't have the ability to generate random data. To achieve randomness in my tests, I've been working around scripts.

    BrowserStack

    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.

    Usability

    BrowserStack

    It integrates directly in internal networks and local development. The point and click interface of choosing your device, pick the browser/version and you have a working emulation of that exact environment. What else could you ask for? I've set our least computer savvy users up with BrowserStack for testing in minutes. It feels like it's just part of your local environemnt.

    Performance

    BrowserStack

    Browserstack is pretty fast and reliable when it comes to performance. We can see significant time gap between the tests run locally and the test run in Browserstack. Its performance is unparalleled. We don't integrate Browserstack with any other app so, I cant comment on that. But as a standalone app it performs quite well and fast.

    Support Rating

    BrowserStack

    I'm saying a 10 for support for BrowserStack only based on feedback from the development team. I myself have never had to reach out to support for any questions or issues, but others in the company have. From my conversations with them, the support was fantastic and had been a pleasure working with the BrowserStack team.

    Postman

    There is a lot of in-depth documentation for Postman available online, including detailed guides with screenshots and videos. They provide example APIs for new users to explore while learning how to use the tool. Generally, bugs in the client are quickly addressed through frequent free updates. Community and professional support options are available - most of the time, the free/community level support is adequate

    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.

    Postman

    Previous to using Postman, I would either use browser tools directly, or write an in-house tool to send requests. Postman eliminates that need while providing a much better experience and more features. At the base level, Postman is as simple as typing in the address as you would in a browser. Authentication can be provided simply as well.

    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.

    Postman

    • Postman is free (although there's a paid tier that offers more features) so using it for testing APIs comes with little to no risk (besides learning curve).
    • The learning curve is a little steep for non-developer users, but developers should find it easy to pick up and use right out of the box, so to speak.
