Responsive SVGs8:41 with Nick Pettit
When working with embedded SVGs and styling them with CSS, it's possible to add media queries and create responsive images. This is helpful for SVGs that contain lots of fine detail that might not look good at smaller sizes. In a mobile-first approach, the detail is first removed, and then added back in along the spectrum of larger screen sizes.
Browser support for SVGs is generally good. However, there are a few issues to be aware of in Internet Explorer, particularly that SVGs are only supported in IE 9+. Read more about SVG browser support at caniuse.com.
