Introducing short /b/ browse URLs

We've added a neat feature to browser sharing URLs - you can now shorten the link to your browser. Simply click "Shorten URL" in the Tools - Share Browser dialog:

Shorten a browser sharing URL (cross-browser testing)

This will create a short /b/ browse URL to your current browser. Remember, /b/ is short for browsing.

If you don't want to shorten the URL, you can create a URL to a browser yourself. Here's the structure of the URL:

https://www.browserling.com/browse/BROWSER/VERSION/URL
  • BROWSER is firefox, chrome, opera, safari, or ie.
  • VERSION is the browser version (for example 25 for opera, firefox, chrome, or 9 for ie).
  • URL is the URL that you want to load in Browserling, for example, http://www.digg.com.

For example, this URL shares http://www.digg.com in Internet Explorer 9:

https://www.browserling.com/browse/ie/9/http://www.digg.com

Happy cross-browser testing!

We like improving every single small detail at Browserling to make our product better and your life easier. We've enabled right and middle click (mouse wheel click) in Browserling. You can now inspect HTML elements by just right clicking on them, copy/paste text through the context menu, open links in new tabs, and do everything else that you normally do in a browser.

New Feature - Browser Sharing through Tools

You can now share a link to your browser. Simply select Tools - Share Browser and you'll be presented with this dialog:

Share a browser (cross-browser testing)

You can simply copy the URL and send it to anyone and when they click it, they'll load the same browser, version, and URL in Browserling.

In general you can create such URL yourself. Here's the structure of the URL

https://www.browserling.com/browse/BROWSER/VERSION/URL
  • BROWSER is firefox, chrome, opera, safari, or ie.
  • VERSION is the browser version (for example 25 for firefox, chrome opera, or 9 for ie).
  • URL is the URL that you want to load in Browserling, for example, http://www.digg.com.

For example, this URL shares http://www.digg.com in Chrome 25:

https://www.browserling.com/browse/chrome/25/http://www.digg.com

Happy cross-browser testing!
