According to Adobe, the merger will allow Figma to bring Adobe’s capabilities in imaging, 3D and video onto its platform.

Figma was one of the biggest rivals to adobe. Just like Canva, Figma is also a browser-based designing software and website. It offers web browser applications as well as apps for both MAC and Windows.

Figma was the biggest rival to Adobe XD because of its light weightiness and free to use. It supports almost all the features of Adobe Xd and was one of the industry leaders in the field of UI & UX designing.

Figma was the go-to choice for many UI & UX designers. Not only that many designers whether they are UI designers, Visual designers or Graphic designers, also use Figma for their work.

Figma, which was founded in 2012, allows software developers and designers to collaborate remotely and design. Its basic plan offers 3 team members access and use of files at a time in a specific team project. It was also becoming popular for its FigJam feature which is a whiteboard used by teams to collaborate and brainstorm ideas on a project.
