If you must use Internet Explorer, then Gliffy is your solution. Otherwise, use Lucidchart.mikemainguy.blogspot.com
Gliffy is a very solid product, and it's priced fairly for what you get. In my opinion, Gliffy is definitely a better product than Microsoft Visio, but it's definitely not as good as Lucidchart.lessannoyingcrm.com
As you know, I never ever ever publish anything from vendors, but I just really like Lucidchart and appreciate that they are giving educators and students this amazing tool for free.friedtechnology.com
Want to make the change to Lucidchart, but worried about losing your old Gliffy documents? Lucidchart now offers Gliffy import. Simply choose File > Import > Gliffy from the top menu bar to seamlessly upload your documents into our editor. You'll then be able to edit them with all of Lucidchart's unique advantages, outlined below.
With Lucidchart, you can create consistent themes by picking a desired look and then applying it to every shape that you drag out. This saves you time and headaches. Gliffy lacks this feature.
More polished look
Lucidchart's vibrant colors and gradient options give you more design flexibility and clean, professional-looking charts. Compare our diagrams with Gliffy's and you will see a clear difference.
Lucidchart makes it easy to simulate real website functionality. Switching to demo mode allows you to show clients both the appearance and the interactivity of their future website or application.
If you have a free account with Gliffy, all of your documents are available for anyone to view. Regardless of your account level, Lucidchart won't make your documents publicly available without permission.
Lucidchart offers real-time collaboration, which means that you and your co-workers or clients can work on diagrams together at the same time and see each other's changes instantly.
We have many libraries that Gliffy lacks, such as mockups for iOS 7, iPad, and Android devices. Lucidchart's libraries offer more extensive shapes and sub-sections.
Which program is a better value for me?
- When it comes to integrations (like Confluence and JIRA), Lucidchart is more affordable because you only pay for what you use.
- We offer free premium licenses to students and educators.
- We let you pay on a monthly OR yearly basis and you can cancel your account at any time.
We think our software outperforms Gliffy, but don't take our word for it: Start a risk-free trial today and see the difference for yourself!
