On Jan. 4th, Microsoft submitted their request to join the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Working Group of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
For the first time, instead of bashing Microsoft, I'm going to cheer for them. SVG has been a huge hype around cut-edge web developers. Browsers like Firefox, Chrome and Webkit has all tried to implement it in some way. With now Microsoft on board to help standardize the SVG format and platform, I think we have a pretty bright future ahead of us. We might just get it this year and just as standardized as the "<body>" tag across all the browsers. (my fingers are crossed)
