      Free program with same functionality and updated looks. Workflow is more streamlined, according to some. Available in the browser as well as on the desktop, both portable and installer versions are available. Covers all the bases!

      ElTortuga It's free as Inkscape is which is very important so maintaining that quality is a must. (This excludes Adobe and other commercial alternatives). Less buggy than Inkscape and better UI. The UI is particularly better due to its dark theme, I'm not a fan of software that is bright and tend to code with a black background.

      LibreOffice - Draw vs Inkscape
      pros, cons and recent comments
      LibreOffice Draw is a very simple drawing suite. It may be sufficient for many, but not sufficient to be declared an alternative to InkScape.

      LibreOffice draw is good for schemes, but not for what Inkscape does - Inkscape is a graphic design tool, not a scheme creator.

      Canva vs Inkscape
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Canva is very very basic compared to Inkscape... While it can do a lot, it cannot do nearly as much as Inkscape. It is, however, easy to use. That is the aim, a very easy to use, but limited tool.

      Canva is not for making art, it for making infographics/greetings cards, etc.

      Looking at the screenshots it seems it's tailored to produce presentations / documents, while Inkscape is more generic and low level.

      Inkscape shows much more intuitive interface and workflow, as well as much more complex capabilities.
