They want to use SVG because they haven't figured out how to just use an image twice as big and scale it down to support hi definition displays, like everyone else in the entire industry has been doing for ages now. And because they like to torment people. I tried to build SVG icons for SeaMonkey and quickly discovered that there just isn't ANY good software out there for building the files and Photoshop's SVG support and conversions suck, so you have to train yourself around not only the limitations of SVG to begin with, but then you have to train yourself around the limitations of the software that generates the files, and then you have to train yourself around the limitations of the browsers. How that is easier than a double-sized PNG is a great mystery to me. I gave up. Had some damn nice icons built too.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.
