Question on Cross Browser Testing Tools
Good morning! I am new here. I will comb through some old posts here shortly to see if I can find additional info, but, I wanted to get this question out there while I could.
Our company is going to branch out from just a couple supported browsers to extend to mobile devices as well as various browsers. I am looking for the best tool to accurately test these platforms. Ideally, I would be able to cover various versions of: IE, Chrome, Safari, Android, and Safari mobile. What do you find to be the best tool for the job?
Thanks in advance!
Browserstack seems to be the favourite. Its not 100% though. Always best to doublecheck issues on real browsers/devices where possible before logging
I highly recommend sauce if you have the budget. Browserstack is also a good alternative.
There are some upcoming ones I think have potential that aren't there yet you may want to look at like Spoon, https://spoon.net/, and TestingBot, https://testingbot.com/. I wouldn't recommend them for enterprise environment that has secure testing requirements, but they might be good for a startup on a budget.
If you're looking to do just visual testing and not heavy automation. You can try the Chrome user switcher extension. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ahfmg?hl=en-US

Hi @sqa_MO, although the best option is to test on a real browser, there are quite a few good options out there which you can try to test different browsers – both free and subscription-based…
From the free ones, these are some of the good and famous ones - Browsershots, Lunascape, Microsoft Expression Web 4 (expires in 60 days), Litmus (allows to use only 2 browsers in the free version).
IETester is again a free tool and allows you to test different versions of IE (IE10, IE9, IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5)
If budget allows and you want to try some of the best premium ones, I have listed them as well here for you:
Browsera – free for limited pages and browsers, paid after that
Browserling – free for short sessions, need to pay for unlimited sessions.
I hope this information helps you...
