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: 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

A must for cross-platform browser testing.

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: 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: LIke that you can cancel easily if you're not using it, and that it allows you to take screenshots as well as Live testing.

Cons: I've noticed a lot of tests that aren't actual though, so it's not completely reliable. And it's very expensive in my opinion, at least for a small company - and you have to pay Per User. Also the admin is a bit clunky, but functions. Also, the latest browsers are not always available. For instance, they only have up to iphone 6 available...

Pros: We use BrowserStack to reproduce issues that our customer that are having and ti test if the issue has been fixed! It is fairly easy to use and it allows us to use multiple browsers/devices.

Cons: I don't have many cons about this software, however, it does take a while to run/load and I find I am always squinting to see the screen. It would be nice if the screen was be bigger!

Cons: For small businesses the prices are a bit high, but there are various packages that you can choose from.

The ability to pull up browser pages from multiple environments and devices is a huge help.

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.

Pros: This is an amazing software to test our application look and feel in all the mobile devices and check for possible issues with them. The full option of the product is amazing and also allows to install them on the "virtual" phone.

Cons: Sometimes the response of the application is not fantastic we had some response issues of the application when trying to test some important developments.

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: 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.

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

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: 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.

Excellent platform to test website support.

Pros: Most used browsers are supported. Debugging is enabled and this has helped greatly with regards to testing and running automation on multiple browsers.

Cons: The product is a bit too pricey for small teams of testers .Developers dont tend to test their code on multiple browsers therefore companies are not willing to spend on monthly licenses .

Overall: Multiple browser testing and debugging

Browserstack is an excellent tool to test your digital product before it becomes published.

Pros: This platform is powerful and easy to use at the same time. You don't need to purchase all possible devices to test your product on them.

Cons: In my opinion the monthly price is too big for an average user. If it could be decreased more users could enjoy it as well.

Overall: A plenty of saved time and nerves :)
