If you have an interest in viewing scalable vector graphics on your Mac, you may be interested in a plug-in for Web browsers available from Adobe, aptly called Adobe SVG Viewer. The new file can be downloaded from Adobe’s Web site now.
Using SVG Viewer, Internet Explorer 5.0 or later and Netscape Communication 4.x can be used to view scalable vector graphics (SVG). SVG is an open-standard vector graphics language that is part of the XML (Extensible Markup Language) standard. It provides Web users with the ability to view high-res graphics with a variety of special effects applied. Adobe supports SVG export through its Illustrator 9.0 software.
As a release candidate, Adobe’s SVG viewer may not be totally finished yet, so steel yourself for some possible unpredictable behavior. Adobe notes that its SVG plug-in for Mac browsers supports non-scripted SVG files only.
