This –an easy way to use SVG– is, in my opinion, the best way to let Flash go…

It SVG icons interest anyone, swing on over to http://www.iconforge.co.za/ – it’s a MooTools plugin to draw icons using Raphael.

I’m amazed at what’s possible in the browser these days.

<sarcasm>I think someone should let them know it doesn’t work in IE6…</sarcasm>

Great stuff. If it had a backend where you could save your drawing it would be great. I’ve already used http://www.hanovsolutions.com/webdraw/ and I just love beeing able to access my drawings both from work and at home.
Also Someone should make this into a google wave gadget, so you can have collaborative drawing.

@edbrup: Yes, SVG-edit is quite easy to hook up to a backend (some wikis and CMSs have already done this). Also, there was a Google Wave gadget for 2.3, but that’s probably bit-rotted in this release (needs an owner).

Seems the iconforge server fell over from traffic. Should be working again…
