Figma is certainly the best as it is very light weight and has some great features. Also, as I am on Linux, there isn't any way I can use Adobe products. So, I prefer figma as it has a browser version which is no different from the app version. Also, Linux has an unofficial Figma client.
But you may try Adobe XD if you don't use linux. Check whether it suits you.

Also, Akaira is in development. It would a good alternative to all these. Also it is free and open sourced with a github repo. You should keep track of it as well to shift to it.

I've been eagerly awaiting Akira for a while, but it's very slow going and, last I checked, nowhere near ready for prime time.

Figma is the best UI-specific option for Linux right now and probably will be for a long time, but you can use Inkscape in a pinch - and as of v1.0, they have finally fixed it so that coordinates 0,0 are at top and left (like DOM and most other UIs are laid out) rather than bottom and left. You won't be able to easily grab CSS or use a plugin to convert to e.g. React components or React Native Stylesheet like in Figma, though.
