Features that help you do more than just “draw”
diagrams.net is free to use up to 10 users, but you get what you pay for. While it can handle basic line and shape combinations, you’re better off trusting your more complex diagrams to Lucidchart’s drag-and-drop shapes, dynamic formatting tools, and customizable templates.
User-friendly diagramming for every user
Lucidchart is built for users of all experience levels—with intuitive guides, gridlines, and a convenient “feature find” tool. diagrams.net’s interface is less polished and has proven difficult to master for both less experienced and practiced users.
Collaborative tools that enhance communication
Lucidchart allows multiple users to update and comment on diagrams simultaneously. While diagrams.net offers similar functionality, they do not offer shape-specific comments, and it’s difficult to tell which users have made updates. In addition, diagrams.net diagrams are only sharable when used in conjunction with Google Drive and OneDrive.
Ideal for teams and enterprise users
Lucidchart better protects your data by providing wide-ranging security features, including domain control, dedicated support, and easy license provisioning. diagrams.net lacks the enhanced security that most enterprise clients require.

I like how simple [Lucidchart] is to use and how quickly my clients get on board and using it. I've tried other products that don't have such a clean onboarding experience.
