The new instance menu can also be navigated by keyboard, to find the options you need even faster:

And, Figma now should use a fraction of the Ram it formerly used, which should make it much faster on resource-constrained devices:

Figma solved the instance swap menu problem that Sketch also suffers from, and variants finally give us a way to handle states of our components. And the spaghetti-like mess created during prototyping large projects is fixed with Interactive components. Cheers.

And I didn't mention the improvements to autolayout and a new developer inspect tab. Please have a look at the video for details.
