I would really encourage you to watch my comparison video where I compare 11 different WordPress page builders. It's a pretty loaded question.

In my opinion, All of the builders are the same but if you want to choose the amazing from the best then i recommend you Divi Builder. There 3.0 version is awesome and you can build the website easily with their front end visual builder.

I created that landing page using Thrive Architect: https://info.leprescottcondos.ca/en/

It gave me the idea to go and try to reproduce the same design (that was given to me by a designer) with more than 20 page builders that I have… I'll make a video about it someday…

For now, let's say that I like Elementor, but it didn't allow me to redo the exact same design (not without coding or custom CSS)… And I didn't do all the complicated things, like the language switcher at the top…

From memory, the ones that allowed me to reproduce the exact same look as the PDS file were:

  • Thrive Architect (of course, since it's the one I used)
  • Divi 3
  • ProfitBuilder (latest version only) (with this one, I had some font issues, but I was able to put them in the builder, so don't know if it's a bug or simply something I did wrong…)
  • Oxygen App (though not litterally a page builder and more advanced, it gave me great results)

Others were almost perfect, with just tiny things missing (most of the time, unable to put a border around the Call to action button):

  • Elementor (used Pro)
  • Beaver Builder 2
  • InstaBuilder 2.0
  • ProStyler builder (comes with ProStyler theme)… More a develop in back-end and test than a “real-time” builder like Thrive and Elementor

Honorable mention to CloudPress, that allows us to build a site on their platform and then export it to our WP site, a little like Wix or Squarespace… Seem to have to keep the original in CloudPress to be able to edit, so not that good, though the designing was great…

So, for a regular site, probably the second list could do as well… For example, Elementor Pro has more widgets than Thrive Architect… and many plugins can be added to it…
