A lot better than testing manually

Pros: For a large site, browser testing is crucial and this system cut down on a lot of the work we use to do manually.

Cons: There wasn't much I didn't like, but I would prefer to pay for just one month instead of recurring and having to cancel a membership.

Overall: Good system, worth using.

Best ever cloud based mobile and web testing platform.

Pros: 1. Variety of browser options with versions.

2. Variety of mobile and tablet device options for Android and IOS.

3. Supports different OS as well.

Cons: 1. I see one issue with browser caching, sometime back i observed it is taking users browser caching and cookies.

Overall: Very good cloud based testing platform that one can think of using for webs or mobile apps testing without having/purchasing own devices.

Amazing product features, but a bit expensive

Pros: BrowserStack is an amazing product to use to test your website on every possible browser. It makes it easy to make the website more accessible and reduce our bounce rate

Cons: The cost is pretty high, would be amazing if you could pay with credits instead of monthly packages

Does Exactly What You'd Hope

Pros: It is absolutely needed for a busy web designer in this day and age. It puts REAL browsers, devices, and operating systems at your fingertips. I try to check a bunch of them before deploying, and whenever a client calls and says they're seeing something funky that I don't say, I can get the exact specs of the device they're using and look for myself. Since you also are actually using the browser from that machine, as opposed to an emulator of sorts, you can use that browsers dev tools, as well.

Cons: The only thing I would change is that it would work well in Safari, whereas they kind of tell you to use Chrome. But that's a SMALL complaint. Less than a complaint. It's no big deal to switch over to Chrome, which I also use quite a bit.

Overall: It is the best way to check websites across multiple platforms that I have found.

the best service for competibility checks

Pros: so if you have a website and you change or update a new feature on the frontend you have to make sure it is compatible with all browsers/operating systems, this is a great tool to do that it allows real testing from that machine and allow to see how your website/frontend looks real time.

Cons: it is expensive, I think if they will lower their prices

Overall: good service will use them again in the future

Gold for browser testing

Pros: Works like a charm for IE testing on Mac, gone are the days when you needed VM for testing on IE. It is also helpful in debugging real time. It's also very helpful in testing for mobile browsers, works like a charm.

Cons: VPN setting is a bit complex and time taking.

Overall: Real time saver for software development testing.

One stop for all testing roadblocks

Pros: In the old days, it was rather hard and time consuming to test and upload any Dev changes unless it has been thoroughly tested and ensured all across all platforms. The tricky part was not to test but the availability of these devices and platform to make life simpler for a QA team. With browser stack you can span across OS and browser and even test your app without relying on multiple tester. It has ensured it has covered all the basics as well as cope up with the increasing demand of new OS and browser that people look forward to use and ensure a bug free product

Cons: Since this is one of its kind product it is hard to find a drawback with it

Save your time with BrowserStack

Pros: This platform is a real savior for developers: it saves a lot of time and resources. Maybe you don't have all possible browsers installed on your PC or all possible devices at hand, but there is no need to worry. You can test your code on BrowserStack. The platform is very reliable, it is pleasant to know that it works without any glitches. In addition, the platform is being regularly updated, so you can test your code on the latest devices and browsers. If you have built a website and you are interested in how it looks like when accessed via various browsers or different devices, then BrowserStack may come to your assistance. First of all, it shows whether the site works and finds the errors if there are any. Secondly, the platform allows you to see the design of the site on different browsers. And finally, you may also want to know if the website is available on devices or how it looks. You don't need to look for all possible devices, iOS or Android, you can just trust the job to BrowserStack.

Cons: Sometimes it works a bit slow but I don't think that the problem is connected with the platform, probably it depends on the internet speed.

You can not test a few browsers at the same time. I would like to see this problem solved because browsers are many and it takes a long time to test the browsers one by one.

BrowserStack suggests four plans but to my mind, all of them are expensive. I would like to see a cheaper platform.

Overall: I would recommend this platform to all the developers who write codes, build websites but don't have many devices or browsers available for testing. It is a real timesaver and a wonderful solution for developers. I recommend you to go for BrowserStack and increase the productivity of your team.

Excellent Cross-Device Testing Tool

Pros: It's pretty straightforward and easy to set up. Setting up access to local development was as simple as installing a browser extension. BrowserStack makes cross-browser and cross-device testing extremely easy. You get access to the entire device environment, so you can access dev tools and the file manager.

Cons: It can be pretty slow at times, which is to be expected when remotely accessing another device, but it can cause the UI to feel cumbersome.

Overall: As a web developer, I use BrowserStack when needing to test something on Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer (we only have Macs at the office). It works extremely well for this and reduces costs for our company because we don't have to own and maintain Windows machines as well as Macs.
