Unlike the other services above, Browsershots is not test your website display in the different resolution, it tests your website on different browsers (Browsershots support many web browser like Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari in many versions) and on platform such as Linux, windows, Mac…

You need to submit your website URL and then wait 2-3 minutes for Browsershots to complete the test (I think Browsershots make a screenshot by a real computer with an automatic screenshot software).
