SVG for IE by Google

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is in most graphical tools. It is used heavily in many big projects, such as KDE (linux GUI) and Wikipedia.

The SVG specification is an open standard that has been under development by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviours are defined in XML text files which allows it to be searched, indexed, scripted and, even compressed.

Internet Explorer's has no built-in support for SVG, you needed to download an browser plugin to be able to view certain images. Google is fixing that now with JavaScript library named SVGWeb. Here is a quick, one-minute overview.
Or find it on their project page.
