Once I had built a test suite of smoke tests, unit tests and spot tests, the amount of work I had to do became insignificant. After a release my testing would be complete in a couple of hours. This left a lot of time for me to just play with the capabilities of the plugins. My tests looked less and less like tests and more and more like applications. After leaving Adobe I was contacted by the advertising department who asked me to develop some of these test suites into demos as well as build new demos from scratch. A number of these demos were featured on the Adobe SVG site.
Ultimately Adobe ramped down their SVG evangelism, due to their acquisition of Macromedia and they have ceased to support their SVG browser plugin.
