As others have said, Safari and can add Google Chrome to the list as well.   So the main odd man out, of course, is likely to be that "stick in the mud", IE.

Subject: [Inkscape-user] SVG support now embeddable in Firefox 3.6
Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2010, 12:51 AM

I don't know about anyone else, but I just found out you
can embed SVG instructions right alongside HTML in a web
document in FF3.6.

But to get it to work, you have to flip on the 'html5.enabled=true'
in about:config.

You can embed SVG images right inside your html now.

Also, the Firebug extension,  apparently added support
for SVG's namespace to allow tinkering /debugging / seeing
how SVG works directly in the browser.

An example of intermixed svg is at:
If you have it enabled, you see a turquoise shaded panel on
either side of the text, otherwise, its white.

You don't have to restart the browser to toggle it.

I have the about:config open in a separate window and searched
on 'html5'.  Brought up brought up 1 result. 
Double clicking on it toggles the value.

the code has
<p>...</p></div><svg preserveAspectRatio='none" viewBox=0 0 400 250" version=1.1" ..

doctype at top (no mention of svg -- it's just part of the

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en">

So no more hybrid docs or embedded objects...

Trés cool!

Only works in Firefox 3.6, but other browsers expected to follow suit...  so in case you wanted an easy test bed for your SVG
outside of inkscape...


It's coming!...
