CrossBrowserTesting is a great tool to use when you have a new page or new content that you want to test on an array of devices/browsers. In the diverse online world nowadays, it is nearly impossible to ensure optimization for every case. CBT allows you to get closer to that goal.

Open Source
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).

Cons
SmartBear
  • Test case support is somewhat limited in customization ability.
  • Not a unique problem to them (or their 'fault'), but content behind VPN or intranet cannot be scanned.
  • Pricing with tier level and features can sometimes be confusing (ie. what is and what is not included).

Open Source
  • 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

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.

Return on Investment
SmartBear
  • By using CrossBrowserTesting we are saving many hours a week in manual work hours.
  • Our automated Selenium tests run in a fraction of the time it takes to manually test our components, so we can spend more time building great user experiences and less time triaging bugs.
