Pro Works as a standalone npm package or as a Grunt plugin
To install as a standalone npm package
npm install -g browser-sync
To install as a grunt-plugin

Pro Remembers scroll position
Remembers scroll position and synchronize it across all browsers so you don't have to move to the appropriate part of the page after each reload.
Pro Synchronized navigation
When navigating in one browser, other browsers will automatically follow to the same place.
Pro Works with older versions of IE
Browser-Sync works with all supported IE versions - IE7 and up.
Pro Doesn't require a browser plugin
BrowserSync does not require a browser plugin to be installed. This is because it serves the files directly itself, and uses a script which opens a socket between the browser and the server.
Con Setting up in Windows can be a little tricky
Sometimes when setting up BrowserSync in Windows some errors will pop up. Most of the time this is because npm throws errors when trying to compile BrowserSync and some of the dependencies need Visual C++ runtime libraries.
This is easily solvable by installing Visual Studio. Once it's installed, there should not be any more problems.
