Notes

  1. Partial support in iOS Safari and older Safari versions refers to failing to support tiling or the background-position property.

  2. Partial support in older Firefox and Opera Mini/Mobile refers to SVG images being blurry when scaled.

  3. Partial support in Edge 15 and older refers to a lack of support for SVG data URIs. see bug

Bugs

  • Opera messes background repeat when changing zoom level: known issue in Opera's private bug tracker (CORE-33071)

  • IE 10 Mobile does not always provide crisp SVG backgrounds, particularly when zooming in.

  • Android 2.x will not display the fallback background-image in addition to not displaying the SVG if it is implemented using multiple background-image properties on the same element. (e.g. PNG background-image fallback + SVG background-image)
