Launching a test browser is really simple. All you have to do is type the URL of your site, select the browser you wish to run and hit “Go”.

There is no Flash, Java, or plugins required because it’s powered by HTML5 and JavaScript. Browsing is made very safe and secure so there is no chance you’d accidentally get infected by a trojan or a virus. And finally your browsing is completely anonymous as all connections between you and Browserling are SSL encrypted.
