It can be a struggle to translate the details of a design vision into the browser. Creating bitmap images, icons, and graphics can be time consuming and result in inconsistency and difficulty with managing updates. Scale-able vector graphics (SVGs) might be just what you’re looking for.
SVGs are now supported on every modern browser and mobile device, and usage is on the upswing, but most people only use them for icons. Most developers and designers don’t realize how powerful and useful SVGs are. From scale-able images to full-blown web applications, SVGs fit many needs.
