Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Record and Replay is the most used functionality for us, as we can record the test cases and play them on multiple combinations of platforms.""CrossBrowserTesting allows us to test our site with real-world devices in real-world scenarios and find what we're missing.""When developing new pages that have questionable functionality or coding, we will often use CBT to test it in a browser. CBT works with our testing environment and development site.""I can run a page through the screenshot tool, then send a URL with the results to my team.""Each new session started with the live testing feature allows for a cleared browser and new experience to be able to not only see these attributes on the page clearly but also pass clean data."

"We can write code in Java and it is easy to link to other JARs that we find on the internet, which is very handy.""The functionality of the data is very good. You can upload and disperse data using the solution.""This solution is very user-friendly to learn and implement, and less technical knowledge is required to handle automation.""The basic framework and project organization is very good.""This is a product that is well ahead of its immediate competition in features and functionality.""The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds.""It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt.""The most valuable feature is that the browser and the API testing is available in a single tool, and I don't have to look at other options."

Cons
"It would be useful if we can run the live-testing test cases on multiple platforms at the same time, instead of waiting for one session to finish.""This solution would benefit from faster testing and support for more devices.""The screenshot tool defaults to a screen layout instead of a full page test. I find it a bit cumbersome that I can't have it run a full screenshot as my default.""Being able to test on real devices via the virtual connection is wonderful, but it can cause some lag and load time issues while testing."

More CrossBrowserTesting Cons »

"The Object Spy is rather frustrating to work with, so I tend not to use it.""Katalon doesn't support testing of hybrid applications. It's a limitation.""My recently-updated Katalon studio version hangs a lot and is not a stable version.""We have had some issues when it comes to stability, which is something that needs to be improved.""They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for.""It would be helpful to have an automatic save feature.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved."
