1. Ocean WP ? 2:08
2. Neve ? 7:54
3. Astra ? 9:42
These are some of the most popular WordPress themes out there, optimized for Elementor.
Just take a look at the numbers: OceanWP has more than 400.000 installations, as well as Astra, and Neve has 40K active installs even though it was launched less than a year ago.
During the tests on gtmetrix.com, the software analyze data like PageSpeed, Fully Loaded Time, Total Page Size, and Requests.
I start testing how fast each theme is bare-bones, precisely as it comes after installing it on a new WordPress website.
Then I install the Elementor page builder plugin and test again how it works in combination with this fantastic tool.
We know that plugins can slow down your WordPress website, so this is why I am doing it.
Finally, I import one of Elementor’s free templates and test again.
