Figma has a new market video that does a great job illustrating the advantages of their app. I’ve been bringing up Figma a lot recently, and that’s because watching how it plays out feels like watching the future of the entire desktop software industry.
Think of it this way: What other app categories can benefit from the features described in the video? We already know those features are compelling for an office suite, but what about a video editor like Final Cut Pro X? A 3D modeling environment like Cinema 4D? A gaming engine like Unity? The entire Adobe Creative Cloud?
It starts to seem like those features are compelling for almost every type of application out there. And if that’s true, it’s just a matter of time until all of those tools get replaced by a web-based version.
