I have just finished reading George Penstons's article, which is a useful
introduction to SVG.
George used one of the "standard phrases" about SVG, referring to quick
I know I am risking being a heretic but is SVG (as it currently stands)
something that downloads quickly?
What do we mean by "quickly" or "quicker"? Both terms seem to pop up in SVG
Is the comparison with deadly slow Flash downloads? Is it being claimed that
SVG downloads are quicker than say well-optimised GIFs or JPEGs?
The more I use SVG the less compelling download speed seems to be as a
"selling point". In other words it doesn't "feel" quick. Am I alone in
holding this heresy? :)
