We just learned that SVGs look visually sharp. SVGs are also flexible. That's not really unique to elements on the web, but what is unique is that they retain that perfect sharpness no matter what size you resize them to. That makes them truly flexible, unlike raster images that lose quality dramatically when you increase their size beyond their natural size.

"Worry-free" resizing, you might think of it as.
