Actually, SVG and tab-reordering will be well worthwhile. Any chance of integrated png and mng graphics too ?
PNG has been integrated from the start, and I'm not aware of any plans to change that--PNG alpha support is considered one of the key graphical features of the browser. But there is no chance of integrated MNG, from what I understand. Stuart Parmenter and others are dead set against it ("too big," etc.) and even went so far as to float a GIF-like "animated PNG" proposal--though that idea seems to have been stillborn, or at least to have gone off somewhere private to play. There is, however, a MNG extension available; see, e.g., the end of bug 18574 for recent updates.
