Adobe to Quickly End Support for SVG Viewer

Filed under: Software,XML — cangione @ 10:21 am

Adobe announced the end of support for their SVG Viewer arguably the best free robust SVG viewer currently available as of January 1, 2007. Disappointing for companies that have used the plug in within their own applications trusting that they had support for a major player in the industry. January of 2007 is not much time to consider alternatives! The claim is that there is now enough support in Browsers and other free plug ins that they do not need to continue to support the plug in. I’m not sure I buy this as much as it competes with other technologies that Adobe recently bought.

So what is an SVG plug in-less person to do? A comprehensive listing of the SVG Viewer Implementations is available on the SVG WIKI at:
