If your embedded system only has 350 kB of space for your app how on earth do you fit a browser in there? Or do you only use the 'static' features of SVG?

Usually this is done in a 'Bring Your Own Device' scenario, where the user has a standard mobile/tablet that the UI is shown on. Using a webapp served by the embedded device allows a zero-install workflow, and zero-config (assuming network connectivity is taken care of).

Ah I see. I was imagining something with its own display, like a meeting room screen.

The embedded system only contains the web _server_. The user has the browser on their desktop/mobile system.
