BrowserStack adds Cypress support for Safari WebKit on OS X and Windows

Cross-browser software vendor BrowserStack has unveiled Cypress support for the Safari browser engine WebKit, expected to assist devs with test automation.

According to BrowserStack’s release notes, this will help developers better understand how tests will run on Safari, supporting Cypress 10.8 via various OS X and Windows based systems.

“Simply pass the value ‘webkit’ for the capability ‘browser’ in your browserstack.json file and get tests running with no changes to your test suite,” it said.

The release follows up awards from TrustRadius for the maker of cross-browser, heterogeneous device testing engineer software.

BrowserStack won TrustRadius’ Winter 2023 Best of Awards in the automation testing category for feature set, value for its price and relationship criteria. Data were drawn from customer reviews and ratings.

“The aim is to highlight attributes customers care most about,” according to BrowserStack’s Ayushi Jain.

In December, BrowserStack was named a leader in the G2 Grid Report in the software testing and test automation categories, based on customer satisfaction and market presence criteria, said Jain.

“BrowserStack’s G2 reviews highly rated the availability of a wide range of devices and browsers, robust documentation, and timely support and customer service resolution as key to improved test quality and developer productivity.”

BrowserStack also received leader and recognition badges for enterprise, ease of doing business, Europe, Asia-Pacific, mid-market, and small business, she wrote.

“We want to thank our customers and partners for their continued trust and support.”

A Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) STAR Level 2 attestation was separately awarded in the same month, upgrading BrowserStack from its CSA STAR Level 1 awarded in February 2022.

According to BrowserStack, CSA’s publicly accessible STAR registry is based on security and privacy controls of popular cloud computing offerings. Gaining Level 2 makes the vendor “the first of the cloud testing platforms to join a short list of approximately 30 companies”, it said.

Other Level 2s include AWS, Google, Microsoft, and Oracle.

“We had to pass more than 100 stringent controls to secure this certification,” the vendor added.
