Our team uses the live testing feature almost daily to check for differences within a web page from browser to browser. The live testing feature is also useful when submitting data from our web pages using different parameters that affect cookies and session storage. 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. The screenshots tool is another feature that we are able to utilize to get a quick grasp of high-level layout differences that may present during testing. View full review »

Static screenshots are the feature most often used, because they are a simple method of detecting problems. I can run a page through the screenshot tool, then send a URL with the results to my team. Though it is probably a minor part of what CBT does, I find it the most useful. View full review »

Being able to test across actual devices is key. Without seeing how your site really works against an older device and/or browser, you can't truly know if your customers will have a good, poor, or bad experience. Device emulators within a browser can only do so much and at the end of the day, they really are rendering with their engine, not the actual engine the customer is using. CrossBrowserTesting allows us to test our site with real-world devices in real-world scenarios and find what we're missing. Better you find out the issues before your customer does.

The most valuable feature is that it gives us "real" OS devices that are available to test. On top of that, we don't have to ensure that all of the devices are up to date. View full review »

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. Live testing with the previous history of test cases is a useful feature. Screenshot testing is a useful feature for applying the same test case on multiple browsers. View full review »

I am frequently using live testing to verify the UI in different devices and IE browser. Also, I've started using a screenshot, but it is not very useful for me, since the page does not load properly without loading another CSS file. View full review »

The local connection is pretty awesome at the moment of testing the developments created at home, and the tool getting the proof of your testing is awesome (videos and screenshots). View full review »
