Versions released in 2021, included performance highlights, such as improved asset loading and accessibility, smaller asset files, a conditionally loaded lightbox, reduced extra DOM Elements, conditional asset loading, style in line loading and faster page load by reducing the amount of unused JS and CSS generated.
Building upon these key offerings, the new version offers reduced JS asset file sizes through dropping support to old browsers with less code being loaded – up to 110 KB less on each page load. Plus, this version offers an improved Font Awesome SVG icons mechanism along with up to 6 additional custom breakpoints. Underlying performance was boosted as part of the focused effort to introduce customised breakpoints without compromising on code, speed or reliability.
Elementor 3.4 offers custom breakpoints for a total of 7 devices:
- Tablet & Tablet extra
- Mobile & Mobile extra
- Laptop and Widescreen
Web creators will have the ability to fully control their website design for an extensive range of devices with a pixel-perfect viewport and fully responsive website design and UI. Crucially, Elementor enables the addition of custom breakpoints without significantly jeopardizing performance.
“Elementor is committed to providing the best platform to meet our users’ needs,” said Eran Alon, VP Product Marketing at Elementor. “As part of these efforts, performance improvements continue to be a core focus in each version and we are excited to share more of these with our community.”
Performance upgrades will drive progress across version releases as the year continues with the following offerings for users to come:
