Differences

It does not require as many plugins as it has many features. It has 40 modules with 18 layouts templates. In addition, you have the option to configure margins and padding for each module.

Columns

WPBakery

It allows you to configure the number of rows without limitations (each section is called in this way, unlike Divi where they are called columns).

Divi Visual Builder

Bring a number of default columns formats, if you want something different you must configure it via CSS.

Test A / B

It does not have this function.

Divi Visual Builder

It has the functionality of doing A / B tests, which is very useful if you want, for example, to generate leads and thus see which message works best to capture your information.

Learning curve

Divi Visual Builder
