The massive popularity of internet browsing combined with the proliferation of browsers, operating systems and devices have resulted in inconsistent website experiences for users worldwide. Developers need to test their website changes across hundreds of possible combinations of mobile devices and platforms. BrowserStack is a cloud based service that allows web developers to perform these tests quickly and eliminates the need for expensive in-house testing infrastructure.
