Chapter 1. SVG Overview > Limitations of SVG

Limitations of SVG

Inevitably with any new technology, it is necessary to balance a description of its strengths with an assessment of its limitations or weaknesses. In my view, the advantages of SVG far outweigh its shortcomings although, of course, in certain specific settings other technologies may offer advantages over SVG.

Size of Download for Viewer

A negative point put forward regarding the Adobe SVG Viewer is that it is a much larger download than the competitor vector graphics rendering engine for Macromedia Flash. Because Adobe is distributing its SVG viewer with other products, many Web users will have the Adobe plug-in available (and installed) with other products, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
