Amazing, easy to set up product for testing browser and OS compatibility

If you need to do basic testing and debugging on a website, it's absolutely wonderful. The phone emulators in particular are critical and I could see this also being useful for app development, assuming you have a sandbox environment that you can test via a URL. It's not as great for doing speed checks on sites vs functionality and layout testing.

BrowserStack saves lives (or at least time)

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.

It is great for spot checking devices. However, if you need to do a full review I don't recommend BrowserStack because the scrolling isn't always the best and changing pages is very slow.

Essential Tool for Testing

BrowserStack is perfect for viewing your URL in all the leading browsers and many legacy versions. It performs really well for being an online service with the quick refresh rate (better than VNC for me). It has a Chrome plugin where I can open a menu and choose from a pre-defined list of browsers to view the current URL. It's always come through for me.

Browserstack - Premium Cross Browser Compatibility Testing

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Anytime automated cross browser testing is needed Browserstack can be a big help to getting a team to quickly test across different devices. The main constraint on development teams is the budget involved to invest resources into a testing platform. If responsive cross browser compatibility isn't a top concern for solutions you develop, the investment may not be necessary.

I think that BrowserStack is well suited for many different situations, from one-man contracting teams to large front-end development agencies needing a formalized testing workflow. BrowserStack offers a simple interface for doing manual testing. It also offers many different ways to automate your web testing both functionally and testing for regression using screenshots.

BrowserStack devices your websites so you don't have to.

If you have a website where you know a lot of people will be viewing it on mobile, it is very well suited. As for general desktop use, it might not be well suited unless you still have a lot of Internet Explorer 6 or Windows XP users.

BrowserStack is perfectly suited for design, marketing, or technology companies that provide digital design services. If your company needs a product that is able to provide testing across a wide variety of operating systems, browsers, and devices including mobile and tablet products BrowserStack is a must have. With the ability to test your designs through all of the scenarios previously described, this product will increase your productivity and improve the image of your company with your clients. BrowserStack will do this by eliminating any programming edits after a site is live and proving to your clients that when you say you test your website across all browsers, mobile devices, and operating systems, you truly mean it.

BrowserStack is designed for the developer to test their products against various OSs and browsers and it does this very well. The addition of the mobile app testing is just another great example of the commitment BrowserStack makes to making the life of a developer easier.

Browserstack is a great supporting tool for cross-browser and cross-os testing. However, at the moment it can't beat testing on the actual devices. Getting the most popular ones and filling in the gaps with Browserstack is the best setup that worked for us. Alternatively, if you are on a limited budget, a small company or a one-man-army developer this tool might be right for you.

If you work on the web, you need BrowserStack

With the sheer number of desktop browsers and mobile devices out there, it would be darn near impossible to have them all loaded on your system. Sure, you could install some virtual machine software, but why? BrowserStack is just a click away, and they have done all of that work for you. I've recommended them to anyone who will listen. It's such a helpful tool. Now, when a client says they're having an issue in a specific browser (if for some reason I didn't catch the glitch in prior testing), I can pull it up in BrowserStack and see exactly what's going on. It's a must have for any designer/developer.

Browserstack on the Benefits

Anywhere it's important to view sites through various browsers, OS and devices would be an appropriate scenario.
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.

It is good for hooking up automation suites and testing on devices and operating systems that you do not have access to. I think the more it simulates the real experience the better. For example, I still think it is easier to use a physical device than to use browserstack.

Test your website on (almost) every device with BrowserStack

If you're part of a digital development team, BrowserStack is invaluable. If your team is on a tight budget, this tool is essential to get full device coverage. If you've got to test across a large number of devices with limited testing resources, then it will hugely speed things up. If you've got an involved testing process, BrowserStack will enable you to automate your testing to improve your release cycles.

Pretty good tool to test your designs. Especially on various Android devices. Makes life much easier for a front end developer to know what devices/browsers work and what needs fixing (Looking at you, IE).
