From what I've read, Popcorn theme seems to get a lot of love, but is the Popcorn theme faster than GeneratePress for WordPress?

I was wondering if anyone has any experience of the Popcorn theme, and if it is faster than the default WordPress theme GeneratePress?

Also, as well as speed, what other benefits are there with using the Popcorn theme?

Thanks. 🍿👍😎

Hi! If your website is a blog, you cannot go wrong with GeneratePress. It's the best theme I have tested. Simple and Lightweight.
Of course, if your website is an eCommerce store or with other special purposes, you might have to use a special theme.

We have no experience with Popcorn theme either.
But from what we have read the three fastest themes are GeneratePress, Astra and Neve. These themes mimify the CSS files.

We use the free version of Astra and are very happy with it. There are so many features and new ones are added regularly. Plus it is extremely popular.

Let me jump in here to agree with the comments about Astra, it works well with Elementor page builder and WooCommerce plugins, too.

I went back to GP because Astra is too shiny for me...grin.

We like the additional features and the flexibility. Of course we were used to making changes using HTML, now we don't have to make as many changes because they are built in..

I agree, that is what is so convenient about Astra.
It was too shiny for me, with All-the-things offered...
