Optimizely is the tool taught in CRO classes
I took a CRO course this past year and Optimizely was the go-to A/B testing software. Here's why:
#1: Super easy to use. You do not need to know how to code, anyone can set up a test and launch it same-day.
#2: Super easy to understand data. Optimizely essentially analyzes your data for you. Obviously, you should know your stuff when it comes to statistical significance when to stop a test (hint: not just when you reach statistical significance), etc, but the graphs and data charts are crisp and clean.
#3: Only what you need. I'm sure Optimizely has a TON of features, but I just used it for simple A/B testing. It worked well for this, and I wasn't bogged down with complex aspects that I didn't need. For someone who does want a more complex tool, I'm sure you can find that in Optimizely with more of the advanced features.

Excellent AB testing tool!
With this tool, you can check which web page or landing page is working best, thanks to the A / B tests.
This option allows you to compare two pages with their different elements. In real time, you can see which one is getting more visits and more conversions. All this without having to have programming knowledge, since you will not have to write a single code.
The page that gets the most interactions and the best results will be the one chosen. A good way to guarantee more success in each of your creations.
This software is very expensive, but it is really worth its initial price, everything else is wonderful

Okay A/B testing tool - there are better options
I got the ability to set up A/B tests on my website. Nothing too special, since there's a bunch of other software out there that will do the same thing.
I was attracted to Optimizely because it's a low-cost tool to run A/B tests on websites. Even though their prices have changed over the years, it's still one of the lowest-cost solutions out there. It's also easy to use, because the most time-consuming step is putting the code on your site. If you have a small website, you can get it done in a few minutes.
Preview mode is really buggy. I also wish there was a way to segment the results by audience. For example, if I'm running a different type of traffic to a page I want to be able to see a separate page of data specifically for that. The new goal setting flow is also buggy, but it is new. Hopefully they fix all the kinks as time goes on.

Ferrari of AB Testing Platforms
It's a good product, although I do believe they over sold it based on ease of use. Most tests we deploy require a developer since the GUI doesn't work well with the JS frameworks we utilize.
This product is really robust and you can do a number of things with it such as multivariate, A/B, and feature rollouts.
Optimizely is not cheap so you need to make sure you use it regularly to get the value out of it.

Easiest A/B Testing Platform Out There
I have been using Optimizely for over 2 years now. In my previous role I used another testing and targeting tool that was much more complex to use. Optimizely's user interface is intuitive and the statistical algorithms give you confidence in selecting a winner. The best part about Optimizely is it's support. They have a support line and they will work tirelessly until your issue is resolved. I recommend Optimizely's platform to anyone looking to increase web conversions or provide more personal web experiences.
