I don’t know the details of the implementation at all, but I would imagine this would defeat the point. My guess as to why Chrome does things this way is to show something before they spin up an entire HTML/SVG/etc. rendering engine. During that time displaying an animated SVG is going to be impossible.

If you want an animated loading screen for your app, you should work on using techniques like service worker to make sure that the app is loaded as fast as possible from the cache API, and you can display your loading screen while you fetch fresh content from the network.

Hi,


Google recently has published icon support centered in splash screen in Chrome 47 requiring icon minimum size 196px, https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2015/10/splashscreen.


I propose instead "splash_screens" with animated SVG that could display loading process similarly to almost any this days Android/iOS-native apps like Skype, etc. Link to spec https://w3c.github.io/manifest/#splash_screens-member


    {
        "src": "splashscreen.svg",
        "sizes": "any"
    }
