While there are a lot of good tools that will get you most of the way
towards simulating different browsers and windows, I think there's no
substitute for checking whatever actual devices you have available. I can't
speak to browserstack specifically, but with other tools I used when
developing a responsive design (good compendium here, btw:
I found that I could get things looking and behaving right in a simulation,
only to see them behave differently when I looked at an actual device. Not
any drastic differences in my case, but little styling things I'd
overlooked and gotten away with in the simulation turned out to affect
things in practice.
