One of the less talked about features of newer browsers is increasing support for the SVG file format. If you are unfamiliar with SVG, it stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. Unlike raster image formats like PNG, JPG or GIF, the vector graphics contained within SVG files are completely scalable to any size and will display at any resolution or screen density without quality loss. In many cases, SVG files will also be much smaller in filesize and download quicker.
With the right techniques and modern browser support, developers can now produce some pretty impressive animations, effects and interactions using SVG. Today we will explore the possibilities of SVG and test the capabilities of modern browsers by creating an interactive vector infographic for the web.
