What is Unique about Genolve?

Genolve is a portmanteau of generate and evolve. Behind the scenes Genolve uses the power of evolution to generate new shapes, patterns and colors. Breed shapes just like you might breed race horses. Genolve simulates some simplified but key components from biological evolution; crossover and mutation. The actual shapes are in a format called Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) which means you can change size without loosing resolution. It is the full SVG 1.2 spec with some simplifications for filters. This format can be directly used in many places or can be converted to JPEG or GIF formats - the easiest method being to make a screenshot.
