What is a cloud browser?
A cloud browser is a web browser that operates from servers in the cloud rather than on a user's local device. Instead of loading a web page locally, it does so on a remote server. The rendered output is then streamed to the user's device as a video. This approach offers the advantage of isolating the user's device from potential web-based threats, while also optimizing resource management. The underlying technology employs virtualization and containerization to ensure secure and independent browsing sessions.
How do cloud browsers differ from traditional browsers?
Unlike traditional browsers that run locally on the user's device, cloud browsers operate remotely, meaning the actual browser processes, including rendering web pages, occur on a distant server located elsewhere.
What are the benefits of using cloud browsers?
Potential benefits include enhanced security, reduced local resource usage, ability to access a variety of browser versions and types without installing and maintaining yourself, and the fastest Internet connection (typically 1 Gbit/s+) as the browsers run in data centers connected to the Internet backbone.
How do cloud browsers ensure user security and data privacy?
Since web content is rendered on the server side, threats like malware are isolated away from the user's device. Furthermore, sessions are ephemeral, leaving no cookies or tracking code after they're closed.
What Is Browserling?
Browserling is a cloud browser service that allows users to interact with various web browsers hosted on remote servers. Users can access and test their websites or applications on different browser versions and operating systems without the need to install them locally. This is particularly useful for web developers and QA professionals who need to ensure compatibility across multiple browsers as well as security engineers who need to open suspicious links in a sandboxed environment. By providing real browsers via the cloud, Browserling offers a convenient way to conduct cross-browser testing in real-time.
Who Uses Browserling?
Browserling has now become the cloud browser platform of choice and it's used by hundreds of thousands of users around the world every month. Browserling's customers include governments, states, cities, banks, stock exchanges, universities, newspapers, Fortune 100, Fortune 500 companies, and private multi-billion dollar companies.
