I replaced an iconfont that I was using on my site with inlined svg logos a week or so ago. Got rid of a request, a ton of wasted bytes for icons I wasn’t using + css for it, and improved accessibility at the same time.
SVG is great :)
That’s some good stuff there
I love these hacks that gets you all of the content for none of the weight, for writing things yourself rather than generating it. This also applies to software of course.
Is this actually a good idea from a security perspective? Simply searching for “SVG parser security” results in some “interesting” results… Although, to be fair, this is more something that a browser implementer should worry about, but this was my reason for not using SVG (anymore) for logos.
The browser support and therefore (security) bugs would exist irrespective of whether developers actually use SVG, or not. Similar issues could exist with font handling if a problem exists with that code.
