Ok so I'm am a black end kind of guy and have had to deal with making our site again and again and again and fu#@ing again.

Who the hell thought up using SVG icons. My first look at it today and I'm not sure if I hate it or love it. Any thoughts?

    Man i dislike them, but only because I do not feel like taking up the time to read the entire repertoire of shit dedicated to just that y'know? There is just way too much shit regarding svg shit

    Depends on the use case. As icons that aren't used that often and that are not really in a text it's pretty good. If it is used in text more often, then it's really painful to implement.

    @netikras the *very* dark corner of the Internet.

    About the topic at hand, we use svg icons for about everything and I haven't seen a downside yet. It's a different skill set if you need to create them for scratch but other than that it's an icon you can scale and color at will.

    Use it inline, use it after trimming in svgomg online service, should be no problems

    SVG rocks for larger stuff, but not for small icons. Whenever there is a line that after all the math doesn't happen to be exactly on a physical pixel line, it looks blurred.

    Granted, high res displays hide that effect somewhat, but it's still bad enough.
