DRAW-SVG editor key features

Drawsvg is referenced by many websites

  • Extract from sitepoint.com :

    Maybe you have already found your free Web-based SVG editor among the apps so far but if you haven't, here is more. DrawSVG is a fully standards-compliant SVG editor with many features.
    What I really like about it is that it looks like a web application (i.e. menu on the left click to open submenu etc.) rather than the appearance of a desktop application brought to the web. With DrawSVG you can draw, modify, and render objects. This includes drawing basic shapes, Bezier curves, straight and curved text, numerous stroke and fill styles, etc. You can also export your SVG to PNG.
