SVG is Scalable Vector Graphics which can be resized to any size without getting blurred or pixelated. This dynamic size characteristic makes it a good use on the web. For example, if you use raster images on a website, you might have to use multiple copies of those images with varying sizes. This is because different devices have different screen sizes. A 64×64 (pixels) navigation icon would be good for bigger screens like PC but it won’t look okay on devices with smaller screen i.e., smartphones. Alternatively, you can use scripts to resize the image automatically which has over cons like blur and pixelation.
On the other hand, if you use SVG icons that will be a totally different story. SVG icons can be resized to any side without any cons. Plus, you can place them (as SVG code) within the webpage source code instead of fetching it from storage or server.
