Even though we will discuss Elementor and Divi, the parameters we have chosen can be considered while you decide on other website builder plugins.
Before starting our post, we will look into some of the basic terminologies and recalls of previous posts.
Website builder tools have a great demand in the market. After Covid, most entrepreneurs are looking for an online market, and their hope can be possible only with websites. So many digital agencies are flooding into the market to use this opportunity.
The digital agencies have strong beliefs about the availability of free website builders in the market.
Among the free website builders, WordPress stands top of all the tools.
As per the statistics, WordPress websites dominate 40 percent of the total websites all over the world.
Visit back to our previous blog on 3 Reasons to choose WordPress over Weebly.
We listed out the website builders.
As per our previous battle blog, WordPress is more comfortable than Weebly as it is available free of cost. Most of the plugins come free of charge.
Among the WordPress plugins, Elementor and DIVI are the most preferred plugins by the developers because both the plugins come with Drag-and-Drop Model. The Drag-and-drop model makes the developers easier to use.
Let’s start comparing the Elementor and Divi.
1st Benefit of Using Elementor – User Interface :
Whatever be the platform or Application, if the user accessing it, the user interface should be self-explained. The features available with the development environment should be easily accessible by the user.
The Divi plugins are a drag-and-drop model, which is very comfortable for developers like Elementor.
The Divi plugin components are floating style. As general human psychology, once the image is captured in the eyes, the content is recorded in the brain. On next time, the eyes started searching the exact location. As Divi comes with a Floating widget selector, sometimes the widget selection is slightly harder for the developers.
On the other hand, the Elementor widget selector and configuration settings have come with a fixed sidebar. Once the user experiences the plugins, and next time it will be very easy for the developer.
In another direction, whoever provides remote support, the remote supporter quickly directs the developer to choose the widget.
As a user interface, Elementor is one step ahead of Divi.
The first reason to choose Elementor over Divi is the Comfortable User Interface.

The Pop-up feature is one of the latest expected features. With the pop-up features, you can enable login/registrations, Call to Action modules, Promotional ads, and so on.
The DIVI plugins are lagging in this round. If the pop-up plugins are available, they are only available with premium mode. The most well-known pop-up plugin available with DIVI is Bloom mail. With the Pop-up bloom mail, you can enable mail support for the customer who accesses your website.
As per research, the DIVI does not have Login/registration pop-ups
On the other direction, the Elementor pop-up plugin supports the most essential features of the websites, such as login/registration, Email pop-ups, Promotional Pop-ups, CTA ( Call-To-Action) pop-ups, Email Pop-ups. All the listed pop-ups come free of cost.
