What is BrowserStack?

Live, Web-Based Browser Testing Instant access to all real mobile and desktop browsers. Say goodbye to your lab of devices and virtual machines.

What is Rainforest QA?

Rainforest gives you the reliability of a QA team and the speed of automation, without the hassle of managing a team or the pain of writing automated tests.

What is Selenium?

Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.

          Review ofRainforest QARainforest QA

          As a PM with a fair amount of testing experience I've been using Rainforest QA to build up a functional test suite for our web app. Writing tests is straightforward and it's nice to then get real humans executing the tests so that you can get readable feedback when something isn't working. I'd certainly recommend giving it a try to see if it might fit your workflow.

          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 at www.cloudqa.io use selenium hub and node architecture to execute our test cases its a very powerful tool to automate web applications.

          가장 강력한 웹 UI / UX 테스트 툴 이지만, 문제도 많다. iframe 안에 있는 건 잘 select 가 안되기도 하고, 화면이 작아 컴포넌트가 화면에 보이지 않으면 또 select 할 수 없다. 하지만 브라우저를 있는 그대로 제어 할 수 있다는 게 가장 큰 매력이다.

          ps. selenide 와 같이 쓰면 코드가 많이 개선된다.

          Maintaining and expanding automated regression tests is one of my primary responsibilities at CrowdTwist. We use Selenium to test the front-end parts of our platform.

          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.

          Automated end-to-end testing that gets our code and user experiences tested more quickly. Can be scripted. Great in a continuous delivery model.

          BrowserStack is used by our development and support teams during QA and to try and reproduce bugs.

          Selenium is a great way to automatically test if a build is sane and can be deployed.
