Browserling vs Docker: What are the differences?

Developers describe Browserling as "Interactive cross-browser testing". We run the browsers on our servers. Fully interactive sessions, not static screenshots. No flash, no applets, nothing to install. Powered entirely by and javascript. On the other hand, Docker is detailed as "Enterprise Container Platform for High-Velocity Innovation". The Docker Platform is the industry-leading container platform for continuous, high-velocity innovation, enabling organizations to seamlessly build and share any application — from legacy to what comes next — and securely run them anywhere.

Browserling can be classified as a tool in the "Browser Testing" category, while Docker is grouped under "Virtual Machine Platforms & Containers".

Docker is an open source tool with 54K GitHub stars and 15.6K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Docker's open source repository on GitHub.

Chose
LXDLXD
over
DockerDocker

lxd/lxc and Docker aren't congruent so this comparison needs a more detailed look; but in short I can say: the lxd-integrated administration of storage including zfs with its snapshot capabilities as well as the system container (multi-process) approach of lxc vs. the limited single-process container approach of Docker is the main reason I chose lxd over Docker.

        What are some alternatives to Browserling and Docker?
        BrowserStack
        BrowserStack is a leading software testing platform for developers to comprehensively test their websites and mobile applications across 2,000+ real browsers and devices in a single cloud platform—and at scale.
        CrossBrowserTesting
        It's implemented to ensure a website's functionality and design and includes testing a range of devices and operating systems being used in the market and customer base.
        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.
        Karma
        Karma is not a testing framework, nor an assertion library. Karma just launches a HTTP server, and generates the test runner HTML file you probably already know from your favourite testing framework. So for testing purposes you can use pretty much anything you like.
        LambdaTest
        LambdaTest is a highly scalable testing platform on cloud. Mainly it provides Selenium Automation Grid with 2000+ browser-OS combinations, Cypress CLI test coverage to 40+ browser versions, and Mobile app testing infrastructure.
