Today I came across the caniuse.com entry for
vector-effect: non-scaling-stroke. Using
vector-effect you can control if transformation such as
scale should be applied to the stroke width, too. If you define
vector-effect="non-scaling-stroke" you can guarantee that the stroke width stays the same no matter which transformations are applied. This functionality can be useful when you're building interactive SVG animations.
Learn more about it by playing with the demo below. You can change the scale value and find out that the stroke width scales on the x and y axis, too. Change
non-scaling-stroke and see that the stroke width stays the same. 💪
