Wix is one of those web builders that might score a ten on ten when it comes to features and core functionality. It brings so much to the table; you cannot demand more.

Wix Editor lets you choose from over 500 designer-made web templates or build your website from scratch. After the recent updates, the editor has become more practical, user-friendly and appealing. The editor also offers an intuitive drag and drop functionality which allows you to create websites without writing a single line of code.

The dashboard offered by Wix is convenient to use and provides a host of features to play with. Being a user, you can play with a lot of stuff in the editor. You can add various elements like photos videos, sliders, content, video background, etc. While adding the elements is easy, you do get some basic facilities to edit them as well.


Weebly holds a really long list of features which makes it comparable with Wix. Although it can trade blow with Wix well, the app store offered in Weebly is not that rich when it compares to its counterpart. You might find a hard time to mind that right tool for you.

Working on the lines of Wix, the software provides a drag and drop editor, facilitating the users who do not have any knowledge about HTML or CSS. It allows users to build feature-rich and interactive websites without any technical skills. Adding text, graphic elements, sliders, elements is extremely easy with Weebly.



Wix is one of the easiest builders out there. Although the software is a bit complex, you can easily get used to it in a couple of hours. We called it complex due to a certain reason which is defined below.

Wix has a wide range of templates which come with their own set of elements and buttons. Many of the buttons might have subcategories which will depend on the choice of template. It is also easy to put the elements in the alignment as Wix uses alignment lines for ease of use.

Moreover, there is no backend option like WordPress, whatever changes you make to the website will appear in real time.


Weebly offers an easy to use interface with a streamlined editor which makes it simpler to make websites. Although it might take some time to get used to it, the drag and drop experience makes performing tasks easier.

Making the life easier, Weebly has put every element in the left side of the screen. The users can drag the choice of element and drop it onto your page. Weebly also uses markers to show the actual place the element will land on your page.

Comparing to Wix, you don’t get AI integration in design which is a plus point for the former software. Apart from some automation tools and limited controls, there is nothing you make a difference between the two.



With Wix, the level of flexibility and control is extremely high. It gives a lot of advanced controls over their elements with unique styling options. It clearly shows that a lot of thought has been put while creating the software.

The tools at your disposal are quite useful. The software also comes with great editing options right from adjusting fonts, media to dynamic elements. Enhancing the practicality of the software is the availability of vector art gallery which is certainly a plus point.

Wix is one of the best tools in the market and can be used to make blogs, eCommerce websites, forums and much more.


Weebly comes with an extremely practical interface with drag and drops mechanism making it amongst the easiest platform to build websites. However, the benefits come with some limitations too.

With Weebly, you don’t get the widest range of templates and tools in the app store. You might face a hard time finding a tool that fulfills your needs. But it doesn’t mean that the software is bad in any sense. It gets the job done with ease.

The platform creates an impression of a powerful and intuitive platform to create professional looking and feature-rich websites.
