A while ago we added a feature that lets you link to a particular browser/version. A few weeks ago we launched multiple OS platforms. Today we updated the linking scheme and now you can link to a particular browser on a particular OS platform.
Here's the new URL sharing scheme format that includes the OS:
wincurrently (Microsoft Windows currently, Androids, OSX, and Linux coming soon!).
8.1(Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1).
Browser_Versionis the browser version (for example
35for Firefox, or
URLis the URL that you want to load in Browserling, for example,
Let's say you want to share a link to CNN in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1. You then just create this URL:
When someone visits this URL, they'll get CNN loaded in IE 11 on Microsoft Windows 8.1.
URL sharing scheme is useful because you can just send a link to a particular os/browser/url though email, or you can put a link in a ticket, github issue, or code review comment. It's super neat and useful.
Happy cross-browser testing!
