- Offers a plethora of automation tools involving testing and screenshots using the API.
- Offers tools to automate responsive testing like their Responsive tool.
- With responsiveness, you can view your site on a wide range of devices. There are so many devices, that to view them is nearly impossible without a tool like BrowserStack.
- In Live view, you can enter your website and select the various browsers you would like to test on. If even want to test on older browsers, you can. This helps you to view various browser tweaks that you may have to make.

- The ability to test remotely on your machine, or test live sites in real-time across all devices and web browsers, saving money for your company.
- Test across the latest operating systems like Windows and Mac, without the cost of owning those operating systems.
- Solve cross-browser and device compatibility issues right out of the gate, saving you time and money down the road by eliminating programming issues after a project is completed.
- Provide a quality product for your customers right-away, improving your brand promise and solidifying your position as an expert in the field of digital design.
- Improves workflow as the last word in the quality of a digital design, allowing you to test site links and navigate as if you had the actual device in your hand.
- Ease of use
- Low Cost
- Quick Setup
- It's a very well thought out service and quite easy to use. Different versions of browsers are grouped together by their operating system.
- BrowserStack goes way back, including ancient browsers like IE 6 (if you really want to see what your CSS/jQuery looks like in IE 6).
- Their plans allow for unlimited testing, which is a big advantage. Some similar services I've seen want to limit you to a certain amount of minutes.
- There is a nice selection of major mobile devices to use for testing.
- While I haven't used the local testing option, I can see how it would be useful for a lot of folks.
- Easy to use
- Convenience of not having to manage each environment and multiple conditions of each
Better suited to run from a desk top as opposed to a VM or sandbox due to the fact that the speed was significantly reduced through the VM.
We found the speed factor improved noticably when running Browserstack directly from desktop.
- Synching up with automation tests
- Testing on devices you do not have access to
- Testing on operating systems you do not have access to
- 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.
- Implement and view designs across various browsers and devices
- Test throughly any broken features
- Making sure designer to developer flow was seamless and without any delivery issue
