“Initially, @googlechrome’s emulation before moving on to Xcode’s simulator with @browsersync, and @ browserstack, for the “final showdown” (finding edge cases),” reveals @bluemwhitew. @RiIrving likes @BliskBrowser: “We believe it’s as reliably close to the real thing as possible,” he says.
“I’ve found http:// crossbrowsertesting.com to be really handy for testing on old versions of IE and Android devices. But, you can’t beat the real thing,” says @blueocto. @ therealnizza and @_LukeBailey also like actual devices, supplemented with BrowserStack or Browsersync.
