    "I was able to cut my overhead down significantly by running the Intern software to stress my new web page and corresponding app. By using software, I was able to significantly stress the software and server beyond my initial estimates of users. When launch arrived everything was a success."

    "Pretty basic for those who want to test their java scripts, but it works. It's easy to use and very fast. I've used it with jQuery Mobile products and was surprised at how well it read my code and helped me develop my software quicker. "

    "I found Browsershots very easy to use when I needed to use it for some cross-browser testing I was helping a friend with. It easily helps to see how the site you are developing and testing looks on different browsers and operating systems. It's a free web app that I'd certainly recommended to check out if you may be in need of such a tool that is straightforward and simple."
