I agree with you guys. Most of the sites now uses SVG. But I'm worrying
about the resource constraint platforms where browser is not intended for
open Internet browsing, rather it is used for building user interfaces(like
navigation systems, tv, set-top-box). Though using SVG in the constraints
environments increases the productivity, but most of the platforms still
lacks OpenGL ES2 or OpenVG & survives only with 2D accelerators!!. As far I
know most of the pages still uses SVG to show only very basic graphics
elements like buttons,... and it may be lack of proper tools to author svg
documents.
