Performance

Lag

I used Weebly’s website builder on 2 separate wifi networks and did not experience any lag or performance issues. I found the entire site to be very responsive. For a live demo, click the Editor walk-through video below.

Collaboration

Weebly allows you to add additional users to your site editor but does not offer real-time collaboration. Multiple users attempting to edit the same site receive an on-screen warning and are not allowed into the interface at the same time. Click the video for details:
