"To keep Mozilla competitive, allow SVG to reach its full potential, and
help kill Flash..."

"Maybe it's just me, but I'm wondering when SVG will become Flash. Or am I

"Scalable Vector Graphics: It's text based (XML actually), it's an open
standard, it can be created dynamically, it's graphics, it's text, it's

"Will SVG replace Flash? Not likely. Certainly not any time soon. Will SVG
