That is the only way. Unless..

<!-- --> is the only way to comment in HTML.

Unless you use JavaScript to replace specific stuff using regexp, (which means you can make your own way of commenting!)

Or, if you don't want to do that, you can do this trick in VScode or replit:
You can do ctrl + / to comment lines, or select the specific text you want to comment and press ctrl + /.

I don't think so, i think the only way is <!-- and -->

Now they've changed the shortcuts so if you're on windows you sould use the shortcut ctrl++7 (control+shift+7 or control+/).
In mac you'd use instead of ctrl

the only way you can comment is <!-- -->. But if you mean comment whatever you want quickly, the easiest way is to do cntrl + /. just highlight whatever code you want commented, and do cntrl + /.

like that.
That should work

Unfortunately, that is the only way that you can comment in HTML.
