Is the desktop app faster than the browser of figma?

Or are there any pros and cons to using the desktop app?

I started using the desktop app because the hotkeys made more sense. At the time, Figma and the browser were competing on some.

Might not be the case now. It is also nice having the icon in the bottom bar for easier access.

Updating might be simpler on a browser as you occasionally need to update the desktop app.

In desktop app you can zoom in & out with Cmd + plus/minus.

Thanks guys I am noticing in the browser some hot keys don’t work like the cmd plus/minus. Was driving me crazy. Thank you. It looks to much better on the desktop and the hotkeys work as they should. Thank you!
