    Adobe shuts down BrowserLab

    Adobe has shut down its BrowserLab service, used by many for testing content across multiple desktop platforms. The company pointed its customers to two alternatives: BrowserStack and Sauce Labs. BrowserLab offered cross-browser testing by producing screenshots of websites from various browsers across Windows and OS X platforms. It was very useful for developers looking to support as many different users as possible.

    Basically, Adobe never updated BrowserLab to include mobile browsers, and thus saw a drastic decline in use.

    So instead of including mobile browsers, they shut the whole thing down?

    Bit of a pity, but I admit I didn't use it much. It could have been quite a useful service if they had stayed behind it.

    I used it a long time ago because I had a FF plugín which sent the page to Adobe Browser Labs with just one click. Quite handy. But then, it was free for one year. After that, you had to pay and I wasn't doing enough web development to justify the cost (which although not expensive, it comes on top of many other costs)
