Internet Explorer It would appear that Microsoft will finally take standards compliance in the browser world seriously, after dragging its feet for years. Back in November 2009, the Redmond giant already revealed that Internet Explorer 9 would come with CSS3 and HTML5 support, and now the cup runneth over, as Microsoft has requested to join the W3C's SVG Working Group.

As long as a commonly used browser like the ie doesn't support SVG, web developers will not use it in their sites. If Microsoft finally decides to support SVG in future browsers, this would change.

That would be gret for mobile devices where small screens may require scaling of the graphics, and where the the bandwith may be limited.
