    Same question here. Figma has been the most buttery experience on my 2016 13" MacBook Pro and haven't looked back. That goes for browser or native wrapper.

    Woodworking is a whole new world of craft and analysis. Highly recommend. 10/10

    Yeah, agreed. That's the beauty of competition.

    The line between pseudo design [like mockups/comps] and actual implementation is slowing blurring for tools as we inch closer to creating and implementing in real time, re: no-code movement. Though, web standards had to reach a point for apps like you listed to become viable and as those standards improve, the apps will too, bringing in more users.

    Yeah, the frustration is understandable. This could've been a low hanging fruit for them and something that's been on the roadmap for a while and still not inhibit progress on new features. The innovation and engineering mindset Figma brings is refreshing and don't foresee them slowing down on that front.

    Hmm, personally, I think the contrast is a little better on the layers panel now that the labels are bold; the gray backgrounds for frames always threw me off spatially. And visual hierarchy was a big bump in improvement for me with the increased indentation.

    Again, we don't know the nuances of the problems they were solving. It's easy to point at the changes and call them detrimental, but for all we know they could have fixed a lot of issues people were having before. We just don't know at this point.

    Because you're really having usability issues, you're already doing the best thing by voicing it directly and in the open so they have more data to go off of.
