Ensure that your web application is standards based, and it 'should'  
work in more than one SVG viewer.

In fact it should work in all standards compliant viewers, however at  
the present time not all viewers comply with any one standard, and  
many viewers for good reasons support particular functionality in  
addition to their chosen standard.

It may also be possible to circulate ASV with your application, but  
check with adobe.
