It's incredible how much this service has increased my productivity when it comes to testing new features in multiple browsers. And not only multiple browsers, multiple operating systems as well! And really LOVE that you can run it locally.
We only really need this for IE support
VSO/Team Services are a natural extension of my TFS experience. Manage projects, version control, testing & continuous integration pipeline (CI/CD). Integration with Azure. Full SDLC.
We use VSTS to host our repos, to manage our backlog and plan our sprints, to track our work (tasks and bugs), host our knowledge-base (wiki) and a lot more. I am the team admin.
We use BrowserStack to run end to end tests with Selenium on our dashboard. It runs automatically before every deployment and cancels it if anything is out of place.
BrowserStack is used by our development and support teams during QA and to try and reproduce bugs.
Integrated development of c# and visual basic.NET web and desktop applications.
Manually and automatically test our web and mobile apps.
