Brizy is a free WordPress page builder built in React. It represents a new way of building websites with WordPress what is both innovative and very easy to use.

Brizy Review: Key Features

  • Easy To Use Interface
  • Global Linked Colors & Fonts
  • Inline Editor
  • WooCommerce Integration
  • Professionally Designed Blocks
  • 4k Useful Icons

Brizy Review: Things To Consider

Brizy is the new page builder that brings along with it new ways of doing things. Normally I wouldn’t be excited about a new page builder because I only want to use products that I know I can depend on and that will be supported long term.

What is different here is that the developers of the Brizy WordPress page builder have been developing WordPress products for 10 years. That’s what makes this different for me.

Right now they have a pretty aggressive roadmap with some amazing features planned. So time will tell if they can deliver. I think they can and they will.
