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.

Pros: Ease of switching from local testing to testing in the cloud.

Ability to group test results and generate basic reports.

Ability to include test execution video in JIRA bug reports.

Ability to re-start manual session with the same parameters as previous one.

Cons: Response time of their endpoints changes unpredictable over the day.

That affects some testing, especially when we need to test some dynamic elements such as progress indicators in our mobile apps (that appear just for a few seconds so test cannot capture them opposite to local testing).

Pretty complicated learning curve for newbees. When junior member joined my team, I needed to spend 3 hours explaining him basics about our test automation infrastructure built around BrowserStack.

Overall: No platform specific bugs missed anymore.

We ended up on a few physical devices (while the rest of testing is on BrowserStack cloud) without loosing the quality of testing.

Pros: 01. When we made a web app, we bring it through the cross-browser parallel testing plan. because we didn't have any inhouse resources to test it on multiple platforms with different browsers. It need more resources. But browserstack will do it for us. It is a life saver.

02. second thing is "live testing" and "UI's", It's very easy to use and very understandable.

03. They provide 1500+ real devices and simulators to execute our workflows. Because of this real devices our testing process will more quicker than simulators.

04. They are providing a real environments (Real devices) to test your applications. And it allows you to take screenshots of your current screen (Live Test).

05. Browerstack cloud helps to deploy parallel executions without any delays. It's very faster than other cross-browser testing applications.

06. Browserstack provides more reliable and secure local testing features.

Cons: 01. couple of times we had glitches on a testing devices. I think it's because of the connection issues. But it's not a big deal.

02. Response time is slower sometimes. It's also depend on your network connection.

Overall: It saves my time and money. As a tester we can't afford each and every resources to test our applications. That is why I choose browserstack. It helps me to complete my executions without any issues. It helps me to build a better product without any bugs.

Pros: Easy to swap between devices for testing on different browsers on different devices. Gives a good idea of what things will look like (not always perfect but very close), price is excellent and they are always adding new device and browser combinations.

We like the support of what might be considered defunct or out of support devices and browsers as 5% of our market still uses these. Great for testing old versions of Internet Explorer too.

Allows us to quickly test and check reports of issues from users on our range of in house solutions and systems.

Cons: Not always 100% accurate to the device/browser mix. We sometimes need to grab a device just to check when the issue cannot be replicated. This is only a couple of times a year.

Overall: We have been using Browser stack for a number of years. Still seems to be the best, most cost effective tool on the market.

Good for the tester to check possible issues before each of our software releases and to report back to the developers.

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

Pros: BrowserStack lets you interact with websites in a wide array of browsers, both desktop and mobile, running in the cloud.

Cons: There are inconsistencies from one session to another. Sometimes I'll log in to a browser session, find the browser unusable, and will have to log out. The inconsistencies are especially frustrating when trying to use BrowserStack for automated testing, as tests will fail at random.

Overall: We've used BrowserStack for years, but have had enough problems with it that we're in the process of considering alternatives, particularly Sauce Labs.

Pros: In past two years this is my primary cross browser testing tool.User friendly UI and easy to understand. It's easier to work with this tool and it provides various features to fulfil your testing purposes. If your looking for to get done your executions with less effort and higher efficiency, This tool is the best solution. They provides more than thousand devices to deploy your executions. This is very stable and reliable application. Highly recommended for anyone.

Cons: You need a better network connection to get more efficient results. Other than that there are no any cons to mentions. It's very perfect tool. Cheers !

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.

Pros: It's an efficient way to test out a website across multiple devices and operating systems, testing out that all important adaptive or responsive design. It's fast to grab screens across multiple devices or to test live on a multitude of website devices running different operating systems and different browsers.

It's quicker, and cheaper, than testing across tens of different devices. When compared to real devices, it provides an accurate representation of how the device/browser sees the website.

Cons: Price. It's not cheap, it's expensive and they constantly are pushing the prices up.

The enterprise that I work with is not keen on providing an annual membership, as such, I find myself purchasing a monthly subscription ad hoc as required to ensure that I continuously deliver a robust website across multiple platforms.

I wish there was an alternative that was equal in weight.

Overall: Whilst using live devices has been updated frequently, the screen capture functionality doesn't get the same degree of love during updates.

During a major website redesign and new CMS integration recently, I needed to ensure that the slicing of the website design into code performed as intended across all modern devices/browsers.

Pros: Before using the browserstack we have added lots of burning hours of team into validate web application with different environment. It is Doesn't matter that what version of browser you use. Browserstack provides you approx all version of chrome,Mozilla,Internet explorer and many more.

You can easily QA your web application in all the browser easily with browserstack. Its also provide mobile and tablet view of your application so your QA should easily validate the application.It reduces lots of effort and QA become more faster using this.

Cons: Sometime its not working properly or provide perfect output. Defiantly its rare case but i hope upcoming upgrade it will be resolved and lots of other feature.

Overall: It is very use full to validate front end of web application in different type of platform as well as different versions of browsers.It reduce lots of work efforts of QA to moving one browser version to another. Simply just select version in which you want to validate your web application and it will give you output.

Pros: With BrowserStack, you can choose which devices and operating systems that you want to display your pages with, to ensure that things are rendering correctly. In HigherEd, students (and faculty) frequently trade devices, operating systems, etc., so to be able to verify that the code we write is going to be appropriately viewable for a wide variety of devices is a necessity.

Cons: The only real "issue" with this software is that there is no real "step"/usage tier -- you either must have the full-blown version, or none. In HigherEd, our projects wax and wane. It would be helpful to have a subscription where you could view XX number of different web pages, so that if we are not in a big production year, we can still test and verify the smaller number of pages that we produce.

Overall: The ability to view code that I've written on different platforms and formats is a huge help. It takes the guesswork out of hoping that a browser or device will act a certain way when rendering the code.

If you do any kind of web development, you need this.

Pros: I used to do marketing web everyday, and BrowserStack has helped me test the site on different browsers on different platforms and sizes easily.

For some bugs that clients said happened in some specific environment, sometimes it's hard to reproduce. It helped me a lot and saved a lot of money for not having to purchase a same phone/laptop for testing.

Love the browser plugin which allows you to test private or local sites, makes testing super easy.

Cons: - It gets more and more expensive.

- Sometimes it's pretty slow.

Other than that, not much to complain

Pros: There is no better way to test your web applications on a variety of browsers, operating systems, and devices. It's incredibly easy to use and works VERY well when testing content on your local machine. For our web developers, there is simply no alternative.

Cons: It's not cheap when you have team members who aren't frequent users. That really is my only complaint.

Overall: Ensuring our web experiences lived up to our developers expectations on all devices all without having to maintain our own device lab.

Pros: Browser Stack made testing for bugs extremely easy and saves a huge amount of time. Being able to just log in choose my versions and then start trying to replicate is much easier than reverting to an old version of Firefox, for example, and then trying to test for bugs. The time saved by using this is it's biggest benefit.

Cons: The load times can take a bit for it to load. It also has a tendency to freeze and then you will have to restart.

Overall: The time saved by using this was my biggest benefit.

Pros: BrowserStack can simulate nearly any browser on nearly any operating system. It's really useful for web agencies for testing their websites against targeted and/or old browsers. Sometimes you just don't have an Internet Explorer browser available on a computer somewhere, that's where BrowserStack come to the rescue. Since a few years, you can also test mobile devices and browsers, and with a partnership with Microsoft, you can now freely use any Edge browser testing. The UI of the tool is nice and well engineered.

Cons: BrowserStack powerful features come of course at a price, which is relatively high. But for most agencies, paying such a fee for such a tool is really worth it.

Overall: Being able to test on nearly any configuration (operating system, browser, device...) without having to set up virtual machines and all the complicated stuff behing.

Pros: Browserstack is a great way to test a website in multiple browsers. You can use many version of chrome, internet explorer, firefox, and edge. As a web developer who uses a Mac, I mainly use it to test Edge and Internet Explorer. Browserstack kept me from purchasing a PC when building our website. It also has many features (including local development) that I have yet to fully lean into.

Cons: Browserstack is priced high! The lowest package is out of reach for me as I use it sparingly. Instead, I have used Microsoft's virtual machines for Internet Explorer.

Overall: Browserstack is very convenient and powerful, but the price is prohibitive for me as I use it sparingly.

Pros: Browserstack is super-simple to use. Click on the name of an operating system (mobile, too!) and browser, and within seconds you'll have a fully functional browser on that host with developer tools installed, ready to test any site on the internet. And with the "Browserstack Local" Chrome Extension, you can even test apps running locally in the same way!

Overall: Before Browserstack, I had to install a half-dozen different browsers on my Mac and phone, and find a co-worker with a Windows laptop, all just to make sure my app looked and worked well across different platforms and browsers. With Browserstack, I can do all that testing from the comfort of a single app.

Pros: - Uses actual devices and not emulators

- A wide range of devices and sizes are available

Cons: - The Chrome extension works about one out of five times you try it

- Lots of bugs in getting it to work, and often kicks you off the device for unknown reasons

- The connection is slow, but to be expected with remote connection to a live device

- Sometimes bugs still do not show on BrowserStack which I can see on my own device of the same type

- Checking localhost sites is especially difficult to get working

Overall: Cross checking responsiveness is a MUST for web design, but using this tool is close to a nightmare. It typically takes me 15-20 minutes just to get it working correctly, and I can't explain why sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. Their chrome plugin and the desktop app seem to work in connection to each other, but how or why they work sometimes and not others is a complete mystery.

Testing Localhost sites especially will give you a headache as the tech just isn't well designed for a good user experience.

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.

Pros: Browserstack allows us to easily test a web app across every browser and mobile browser. It loads fast, and is more cost and time effective than maintaining a bunch of browser and device versions ourselves. The live testing has made it easy for us to check and debug cross browser CSS issues.

Cons: I would like if the live plans allowed me to set a bookmark for each of the sites or apps I tested, and even to specific pages of those sites so that I would be able to come back to Browserstack and test faster.

Pros: Users can quickly switch between various operating systems and browsers to test new web designs. I used this at a corporate web design department and it helped find mobile responsive issues, page render issues, and determine areas of improvement. I really liked that you could test internal local web pages that are on a local network with the use of a Chrome plugin.

Cons: Working on the corporate network, it was at times slow to navigate test pages. This is probably our own network issue and not a fault of BrowserStack's service. It seemed to work fine from a home network.

Overall: Testing web page browser compatibility on various browsers, operating systems, and devices.

Pros: BrowserStack provides simple APIs to let you use their hardware to test your UI. It's a heck of a lot easier than manage install scripts and sometimes not being able to have hardware to run tests on that can't be ran on a simulator.

Cons: BrowserStack and get pricey as your app grows, but that's expected as with anything. Other than that, I think BrowserStack is worth a shot if you're in need of

Pros: So easy to spin up different devices with different operating systems and view your websites to be able to test them for browser compatibility. Well worth the money.

Cons: Still, on the odd occasion will you run into a bug that you only experience on a real device and not on browserstack but that's few and far between and could be just for other reasons! Can be a bit slow sometimes too when compared to a real device.
