<br>When it (Firefox) was proposed previously I objected and pointed out that<br>SVG support in Firefox was vapourware and no stable release with SVG<br>support existed (this may have finally changed). I'm quite annoyed at how
<br>the Mozilla foundation have dragged their feet when it comes to supporting<br>standards like MNG and SVG choosing other priorities instead. Opera has<br>had SVG support for longer and the recently released Seamonkey
1.0 also<br>includes SVG support (Seamonkey 1.0 also known as Mozilla Suite 1.8) so it<br>would be unfair to give Firefox any more attention than the browsers which<br>doing a good of supporting SVG and promoting Open Standards.
</blockquote><div><br> I think that the priorities that Firefox has set were pretty important. There have been tools to view SVG in Firefox from at least 0.9, so making them native is less important, IMHO, than, say, making the browser stable and not a memory hog. And, AFAIK, Opera still isn't open source - it's free as in pizza now, but not open source. And since SeaMonkey just went gold within the past week, and Firefox has been stable for a while, and only getting more so, I'd say there are plenty of reasons to give Firefox more attention than Opera or SeaMonkey.

<br><br>That all being said, I still stand by my orginial statement that the Open Clip Art Library has little, if any, to do with web browsers, and since Mozilla hasn't contributed directly to OCAL, there's little reason to promote it on the main page.
