Figma vs Framer

Designers are consolidating tools so they can design, prototype, collect feedback, and handoff all in one place — Figma.

Real-time collaboration

Figma makes the design process transparent, which means everyone gets aligned fast—and stays aligned.

  • Multiplayer: Co-design alongside your co-workers.
  • Observation mode: Shadow the presenter as they move through a file and never get lost.
  • Version history: Know who changed what and go back in time as needed.


Create rich experiences that feel like the real thing.

  • Intuitive build: Simply connect UI elements and choose your interactions and animations.
  • Advanced transitions with Smart Animate: Automagically animate similar objects and create detailed transitions.
  • All-in-one platform: Toggle between your design file and live prototype. Design edits appear instantly in your prototype.

Powerful editing tools

All of the advanced features you expect in a professional design tool, plus advanced features built for the Web.

  • A modern pen tool: Draw in any direction with Vector Networks. No more merging or needing to connect to the path's original point.
  • Instant arc designs: Design clocks, watch screens, or pie charts easily with the Arc tool.
  • Be expressive with OpenType: Tap into advanced font features to fully express your brand.

Turn developer handoff into a handshake

Bring developers into your process early and often. Let them get the specs and assets they need.

  • Unlimited viewers: Invite as many teammates as you want to view and comment (psst, it’s free).
  • Inspect design files: Any viewer can grab snippets of generated code for CSS, iOS, and Android.
  • Easy export: Export the exact assets you need in the formats you need them in.

Team libraries

Build a robust design system with connected UI components.

  • Consistency at scale: Publish components to the team library for others to use.
  • Share across files: Anyone can insert shared components into team design files.
  • Change notifications: Get updates when changes are made to shared components.

It is better in the browser

Figma lives in the browser making it easier to share, collaborate, and present wherever you are.

  • Works on any platform: Windows, Chrome, Linux or Mac.
  • Always the most current version: A “file” in Figma is a just a link that you share.
  • Fast and reliable: Backed by a powerful 2D WebGL rendering engine that supports very large documents, we take performance seriously.
