Dear Hin-Tak,

The Google Chrome m103, the web browser released on the late 2022-06
( https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+log/103.0.5060.53..103.0.5060.66?pretty=fuller&n=10000 ),
supported OT-SVG?

According to https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=306078 ,
a feature request for OT-SVG support was closed as "wont fix" on 2021.

My Google Chrome 114 reports "OpenType-SVG is not supported" on
https://pixelambacht.nl/chromacheck/ , it sounds consistent with the
status of this feature request.

However, although this feature request was closed, some people still post
some comments.

One glaring(?) aspect is certainly that Google's  chrome team supports COLRv1 (not yet a OFF spec) in m98, earlier than OT-SVG (in 4th edition in 2019) in chrome m103...
