It only works well for simple graphics, automatic conversion from raster (i.e. photo) to vector doesn't work well, and modern screens are raster-based tech.

Showing raster as svg is hard

svg isn't an image format for one, it's a hypertext document.

Showing svg as raster is easy but computationally expensive compared to showing svg on vector systems like CRTs.

>Why isn't .svg more popular?
Because vector format is unsuitable for lots of images.
