1. Cross-Browser Testing Tools
- Developers and QAs can check their websites for cross-browser compatibility using BrowserStack.
- The infrastructure enables a developer or a QA to instantly test their websites across a range of real mobile devices and browsers like Chrome, Safari, IE, Edge, Firefox, etc.
With a whopping 33000 active users, it’s one of the largest developer communities online. CodePen provides numerous exciting features like Asset hosting Collab mode, and more.
Pro-Tip – BrowserStack Test University gives access to fine-grained, practical, and self-paced online courses to enhance your testing skillsets.
Asset hosting allows users to drag and drop images without worrying about separate hosting. Hosting for other assets like CSS and JSON files are taken care of.
Refer to the image below for a quick glimpse of the interface.
JSBin is an effective alternative to JSFiddle. Its features also enable users to experiment, learn, and teach. The script written and saved in JSBin by a particular user is called a Bin.
For every Bin, a URL is generated. This URL can be shared to display the user’s work or request code improvements, thus facilitating increased collaboration.

- When testing a website across many browsers, using Devtools for individual browsers can be time-consuming.
- An intelligent approach is to use universally usable tools in the early stages of testing and utilize browser-specific Devtools for dealing with browser-specific test cases.
- Performing tests on BrowserStack helps QA teams to leverage their test script execution as it covers broader aspects of testing in terms of platforms, browsers, and device coverage.
