    "Finally Browser Automation that works!"

    November 07, 2012   |   By Webdev777

    Version: Multi-Browser Viewer 3.0.2

    Pros

    Selenium RC Integration - no need to set up, it is done for you.
    Standalone Browsers - no need to use Selenium Grid or VMs
    Mobile browsers and Screenshot engine is a nice bonus

    Cons

    Big Install and requires .Net 4 installed
    The GUI is a little confusing at first

    Summary

    The other automation tools cost a fortune and can be tricky to set up. I tried doing Selenium before and to be honest I gave up. Multi-Browser Viewer has the browsers you need and it has basic automation working right out of the box. Really good idea.

    "Cool concept, buggy solution.."

    August 01, 2011   |   By 3oij

    Version: Multi-Browser Viewer 3.0.2

    Pros

    UI and concept are perfect

    Cons

    It either crashes or the progress bars bounce all over the place and it never finishes..

    Summary

    It uses servers for what browsers aren't installed and returns bitmaps in that case. The the progress monitoring and app itself are heavily bugged..

    Maybe some other vendor will do this that actually listens to bug reports..

    "A must for every webmaster!"

    February 09, 2010   |   By TerryS123

    Version: Multi-Browser Viewer 2.0.4

    Pros

    Complete browser package without extra dodgy installs like the IE package
    Stand alone browsers to test flash, local and secure pages
    Take screenshots of any public URL.
    Widest range of Mac browsers
    Cheaper than Browsercam and crossbrowsertesting

    Cons

    Not much really. Perhaps the screen resolutions for screenshots should be adjustable

    Summary

    Would recommend this to any webmaster or anyone who wants to make sure their website works in all major browsers.

    "Browser package - perfect for cross browser testing"

    January 15, 2010   |   By GoneFishingAgain

    Version: Multi-Browser Viewer 2.0.3

    Pros

    16 actual sandboxed browsers, wide range of screenshot testing browsers, HTML validation, saves all files locally, easy to use and feels like a good piece of software

    Cons

    Although screenshot testing is available on Mac, the application it self is only available for Windows.

    Summary

    This is the first package I have found that lets me run IE6, 7 and 8 on the same machine, while keeping the browsers rendering engines intact. (There is a hacked IE package available on the Net, but I found it to be unstable and the rendering engine for IE is different). All the browsers launch quickly and runs without having to install the individual browsers, which is great.
    I also found testing my sites with browser viewer was easier because I can switch between my dev environment and to the relevant problem browser with ease. This can be a pain if you have virtual machines set up or if you use one of the VNC solutions for cross browser testing on the internet. Bottom line is I would buy the software for the packaged browsers alone, never mind the other features.
    The screenshot testing works pretty well. It takes full page screenshots of most pages without any problems and has the widest available browser selection that I could find on the web, especially its Mac selection is pretty cool. I also like the fact that all the images are saved locally. Each screenshot test request is saved in its own folder, together with the relevant pages HTML source code and a web mht file. I found this really useful, because I can refer back to the way a page looked previously.
    My only critique would be that the application is not available for Mac, which is unfortunate, but other than that I can highly recommend it to anyone that wants to make sure their site works in all the different browsers available, even the more obscure ones?.
