      What is 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.

      What is mabl?

      Mabl is the leading intelligent test automation platform built for CI/CD. Integrate automated end-to-end testing into your development lifecycle.

      What is 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.
