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 support[edit]

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%.
