BrowserStack

If you need to test websites on a device that you do not have readily available, BrowserStack is a great solution. Its ability to let you inspect the code from the browser makes testing and doing QA on sites easier. It's difficult to see any errors from an iPhone, for example, on the device itself, but BrowserStack allows to you to inspect that code just like you would on a desktop browser. If you need to test across every device very quickly, this may not be the best solution. The slowness in switching devices can be frustrating when you are on a time crunch. In the case of my department, it solved a real need that we had to see exactly what our customers are seeing and be able to resolve any device issues for them.

TestComplete

I would recommend this product to anyone looking to automate multiple applications and/or large scale applications.I feel like this product wouldn't make a lot of sense for very small applications. However, they could provide testing services geared towards start-ups. If TestComplete made a "lite" version I could see is the product being used for start-ups as well as for smaller organizations.

Pros

BrowserStack

  • BrowserStack enables testing against real browser versions - not just emulated user/agents screen sizes on different rendering engines that you get with browser debugging tools. Gives a real experience.
  • BrowserStack allows for quick switching between devices and browsers. At the click of a mouse, you can jump between devices and the webpage you're looking at will be transferred to the new device. Speeds up testing.
  • BrowserStack gives access to an entire device library for a simple subscription fee. Maintaining a collection of devices this big would be hugely expensive too. It saves money.
  • BrowserStack allows automated testing, using familiar Selenium, to help speed up more involved testing programmes.

TestComplete

  • The record and play back works great for our less technical team members. Basic UI validations and some of the happy path functionality can easily be automated.
  • The structure and set up of Project Suites. Easy to organize tests and group into functional tests that can be reused in Test cases.
  • Multiple Types of tests projects can be created. Mobile, Web Page and Web Services. When setting up a new project the wizard guides the user through and allows for the selection of many different options as well as the coding language that is preferred.

Cons

BrowserStack

  • Server performance when many users are testing seems to degrade over time.
  • Cost depending on your team size and needs can grow higher than some teams are willing to dedicate for device testing.
  • Less expensive options put caps on usage that can limit what can be accomplished on the testing platform.

TestComplete

  • Having never used anything like TestComplete before joining my company, it wasn't exactly the easiest application to pick up. The code examples online (particularly the SQL ones) were a little difficult to get the hang of. I was greatly helped by having a guy on my team who had worked with TestComplete for a few years, but the onboarding was a little rough.
  • We've run into various errors over the years involving memory leaks (which required a hotfix patch) and even scripts written in TestComplete not running in TestExecute. While these have always been addressed by patches (or new major versions in the case of the TestExecute issues), it has occasionally required some clever work-around in order to get it to do what we need.
  • We have encountered many issues running TestComplete in an RDP session to a virtual machine. The RDP window needs to be open at all times and cannot be minimized. This may be a technological limitation, but it would be really convenient if we could run 'headless' scripts as scheduled tasks.

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.

Besides the good GUI with flexible settings, application has a great support. Customers are involved in development process, can send feature requests and vote for them. Some of my requests already implemented or coming soon.

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.

TestComplete

For the most part, TestComplete has the same functionality as any one of the other products we looked at. In many cases, the capabilities were somewhat less than the competitor products, but we found that the higher costs of any of the other products we not justified when comparing the capabilities. TestComplete had the highest overall bang-for-the-buck rating and was less expensive than all of the other competitor products.

Return on Investment

BrowserStack

  • We've been able to reduce the amount of plugins and add on needed in my team's browsers which is great for general use
  • With a single license we no longer need to hunt down older browser versions for testing which can prove almost impossible to find
  • The ability to not only spin up a specific browser but ALSO a specific version of an operating system means that instead of needing a virtual box or multiple machines set up for various combinations, it's all in one place making testing MUCH faster (and letting us increase margins)

TestComplete

  • We have seen a much more efficient product release cycle since using TestComplete. )Mainly down to the fact that a new build can be issued and tested very quickly. In turn, this means problems can be found a lot quicker, and the process repeats.)
