Many blogs compare Divi to Elementor, but few mention page builder speed and none run actual tests. Because performance is essential for online stores, our comparison will solely focus on the builder’s performance.

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.

Which page builder should you choose?

There is not much difference between the two page builders. The problem is that Divi and Elementor are the two slowest page builders we’ve tested (out of 8). If you’re looking for a fast page load, then you’ll need to look elsewhere.
