It's not often that I come across a tool that makes cleaning up after yourself a dream. Just added the use of this tool to my Go Live procedure to make sure I don't have any widgets in use that I don't need to minimize code and reducing overall bloat. Well done guys!

Perfect for optimizing site loading time by disabling unused Elementor widgets. It would be even more perfect if there was an automatic function to disable them but the plugin is already a great help as it is now. Many thanks to the developers.

This plugin filled the missing gap for many Elementor users when it gets to Elementor speed optimization. Hope authors will ad an automatic option to switch off all unuseful widgets. Maybe to add JS scan option and automatic removal from the pages which are not using it. Would be a great addition. Thank you guys for a good product!
