BrowserStack announced its enhanced open source program, offering free testing of open source software on the BrowserStack Real Device Cloud.
BrowserStack is doubling down on its support for open source projects with full and unlimited access to the BrowserStack platform and its capabilities. The goal is to empower open source developers with the tools and infrastructure necessary to test with speed, accuracy and scale.
“BrowserStack is committed to strengthening our ties with the open source community and is dedicated to giving back to the developers that rely on open source projects,” said Ritesh Arora, co-founder and CEO of BrowserStack. “The open source community remains an important wellspring of some of the most innovative ideas impacting software development. We believe that, through access to powerful tools like BrowserStack, more open source projects can come to fruition and succeed.”
BrowserStack has supported thousands of open source projects, sponsors groundbreaking projects like Selenium (through Software Freedom Conservatory) and jQuery (through the JS Foundation), and is relied upon by top technology companies such as Mozilla and Google for in-house open source projects. All types of open source projects—including web frameworks, web libraries, web applications, mobile apps and more— leverage BrowserStack for their testing needs every day.
Through BrowserStack’s enhanced open source program, developers can test and debug code earlier in the development cycle and ship releases faster with the confidence that their websites and apps will work seamlessly across every user interface. Results include bug-free releases and higher quality software, leading to higher rates of adoption and ultimately a better customer experience. Using BrowserStack, developers can focus on innovation and building better software, rather than maintaining cumbersome and costly in-house device labs.
New features of BrowserStack’s open source program include:
- Access to All Products. Get free, unlimited access to all BrowserStack products by default: Live, Automate, App Live, Screenshots and App Automate, a newly launched solution for automated testing of mobile apps.
- More Users and Parallels. Speed up testing by inviting more project contributors and running more concurrent manual and automated tests. User and parallel limits are increased to five.
- Real Device Testing. Leverage the full scale of BrowserStack’s cloud of 1,200+ real iOS and Android devices, and achieve more accurate testing results by testing on real devices instead of emulators.
- Lifetime Access. Test continuously for the duration of your project.
