Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) usage by MediaWiki on the backend and web browsers on the frontend faces a couple obstacles, but things are looking better.

Native browser supportEdit

As of June 2010, browser support was quite high for SVG 1.1, with all latest browsers supporting over half of the W3C test suite. Opera scores 95.44%, Google Chrome 89.23%, Safari 82.48%, Mozilla Firefox 82.30%, and Internet Explorer 59.64%.
