There are many blog posts comparing Beaver Builder to Elementor, but few mention page load and none run actual tests. Because speed is essential for online stores, our comparison will focus solely on the load time with the page builders.

The data below is from our yearly WooCommerce page builder speed test. We’ve created the test so that everyone can make an informed decision when choosing a page builder. To see all the page builders tested, the methodology, and full results, read the Fastest WooCommerce page builder.

The 2021 test was done in March.
