While GoPro makes it easy to shoot video, it takes the right software to edit all those clips into something useable and shareable. What are your top 3 favorite GoPro video editing software (mobile + desktop) for beginners and pros?

I only do desktop. So I can't address mobile.
I paid for and used CyberLink PowerDirector for several years. But about a year ago, I switched to Davinci Resolve (free). It does everything I want, has a huge number of very cool abilities, and is free. I like it so much I am thinking about paying for their studio version.

IMHO, none of the "easy to use" editors are actually easy to use. What they are is limited in what they can do. PowerDirector and Resolve can do just about anything that an advanced amateur wants.

Any software is; Pwerdirector is not difficult at all. a few things I find hard but because programs shuffle things or combines them to clean up etc.

I've been using Magix Movie Studio Platinum for years and am now on version 16. It's a learning curve if you don't edit every day, but it's intuitive.
It also helps being a gamer because I have a beefy PC - Ryzen 5600X paired with 32GB RAM, NVMe and an RX 5700 XT. The hardware makes a big difference in rendering times.

I tried to work with different video editors to develop the ability to adapt to any software quickly. I started my career as a video editor with Movavi Video Editor. This program has simple functionality and a basic set of tools that will suit most tasks. When I became a more confident editor and performed Corporate Video projects, I had to get acquainted with Vegas Pro. Of the professional programs, I liked this one the most. Unfortunately, it cannot work with graphics as in Adobe Premier, but VP is the best in other parameters.

I have found that the easiest for me is the free program KDENLIVE running on my Linux Mint machine.
There is a good series of how-to videos on youtube by TJFREE showing how to use the program.
Here is an example of what I have been able to do so far:
