Well, for one, browserling is cheaper with fewer restrictions

eh... it's not the cost it's the fact that it costs. If that makes sense.

People will pay 'whatever' for a service they want, unless there is a free version, people will utilize under developed stuff if it's free, over paying for something.

If you are going to charge, you need to be able to compete. Not to be a douche but if you feel upset by this kind of anonymous heat on your product, you won't go very far.

If you can incorporate more browsers and their old editions, you will have a great product, until then I must stick with crossbrowsertesting.com as I cannot tell my company to purchase an IE only solution

We support a lot of browsers. Take a look at this: http://browserling.com/browsers.json.

We support all IEs, all Chrome versions, a lot of Firefox versions, many Opera versions and some Safari versions.

Also Browserling is not a hobby project, it's a company (Browserling Inc) and we now have over 100 customers.

We also have another product called Testling (www.testling.com) that's automated javascript testing tool in all browsers. All Browserling customers get a developer Testling plan, too.

Why support versions less than Chrome 14 when Chrome updates automatically? Instead i suggest to add support for IE10

And also add support for the latest Chrome: 19

As a company that has to test both JavaScript and visual presentation across all major browsers ... I can say that this product is worth every penny. It's absolutely *not* IE only. We maintain a set of tests for every snippet we deploy to a client site, and we use the ability to quick switch browsers on the fly to demo things for clients. Their automatic code tooling to get stack traces etc is all frosting on the cake. The only legit drawbacks here are a lack of mobile support (but the gap between mobile and real web is getting smaller everyday), and the lack of Selenium like capabilities, and a some 'polish'.

I'm sure given some time and some luck these guys will disrupt the x-browser testing marketplace.
