Overall Satisfaction with Sauce Labs

Sauce Labs is used across the organization on many consumer-facing teams. It is our primary method of regression testing, freeing QA resources up from manual testing. Sauce Labs also takes into account the infrastructure aspect, which is a huge time/cost sink if an organization would have to build that in-house.
  • Infrastructure as a service - we do not need to worry about spinning up machines or VMs.
  • Scalable based on demands of the company.
  • View recordings of the automated tests.
  • Live manual test support.
  • Mobile device support.
  • UI not the most responsive.
  • SauceConnect tunnel sometimes fails for no reason.
We have also tested out Browser Stack, which at the time was more geared towards manual testing. Although it appeared to support more mobile devices/browsers, we also wanted something that can plugin in easily with our existing Selenium test scripts. Sauce Labs was definitely more geared towards our goals at the moment which were to automation functional/regression testing and build it into our release pipeline.
Great for automating your QA test/regression use cases, especially for frontend (including web and mobile). Great for integrating with CI/CD (continuous integration continuous delivery) pipelines like Jenkins. Comes with a built-in Jenkins plugin that makes the integration easy. SauceConnect allows tunneling to internal sites, which allow this to be leveraged for both production facing and internal/dev sites.
