Gradient “easing” / bezier curve control for color stops
Any work that utilizes gradients in Illustrator would benefit greatly from the addition of the ability to manually control/adjust the bezier curves of the gradients’ color stops.
The specifics of how this works are discussed here: https://larsenwork.com/easing-gradients/
Ultimately, this level of control allows for significantly more pleasing and subtle gradients. Relying on midpoints to adjust gradients ultimately results in very obviously visual “steps” from one color stop to the next.
I’ve attached a video demonstrating the easing function, as well as a before and after image to illustrate its effect.

Yes. This should become a standard in all design software and CSS. It would make gradients so much more powerful.

Yes, please! This would be so helpful.
And Figma already have the plugin:
Not a great realization though, but it’s there.
