Live testing gives us the ability to identify potential issues on different browsers and devices proving to be a very useful tool.

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case we use this solution for would be to test our Marketing websites. With our websites, the users' needs are always expanding and growing. There are many times we are adding and taking away content, as well as modifying existing content and page layouts. Different campaigns are created with tracking measures and parameters that are validated for company use and reporting. It is important in these cases that we are able to run tests on different devices and browsers with clear cookies and session storage to be able to see any differences and provide clear accurate results.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, this solution has proved useful to our organization, and with future improvements and the hopeful addition of devices, it will continue to be a tool we use daily.

Static screenshots are the feature most often used, because they are a simple method of detecting problems

What is our primary use case?

When developing new pages that have questionable functionality or coding, we will often use CBT to test it in a variety of browsers and devices. CBT works with our testing environment and development site. Our greatest concern is universal appearance and functionality, thus we test a great many browsers.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

Extensive pre-deployment testing ensures consistency and finds problems before our customers do

What is our primary use case?

We needed a consistent way to test our site against multiple browsers and devices. By having access to different devices sporting different versions of each OS, we can ensure our customers are going to be getting a satisfactory experience. Without this, we are guessing as to how or what experience our users are getting. It's also helpful in researching issues that our customers report when we know what devices/OS/browser they're using. Using a browser emulator doesn't cut it and having a live device browser to interact with the site is invaluable.

Pros and Cons

  • "CrossBrowserTesting allows us to test our site with real-world devices in real-world scenarios and find what we're missing."
  • "This solution would benefit from faster testing and support for more devices."

What other advice do I have?

Being able to test against our local development machine is key too. We don't pollute our QA server until we're ready for actual QA and we can find out what's going on much quicker than a check-in/deploy/test/redo cycle that would normally be needed if it weren't for the ability to test locally. This works and it works well and is a great addition to our testing toolbox. Overall, the product does what we need and does it well.
