110.html used SVG to color stuff instead of CSS Apr 12, 2019 make reddit less angry Sep 16, 2019

Cool Disclaimer:

For SVG to be truly turing complete in the sense of being able to run arbitrarily long tasks, it must have its output fed to it's input--- a sort of driven turing machine. However, this loop can be unrolled an arbitrary non-infinite length, so tasks of known maximum complexity can be computed in one go...\

With this out of the way and apologies for being misleading:\

SVG Is Turing Complete

Scalable Vector Graphics is an XML based language with significant image processing capabilities, and here I demonstrate that these capabilities breach turing completeness.

The turing machine I choose to emulate to prove SVG's turing completeness is rule 110.

Runs in Chromium 73.0.3683.103 after several seconds, seriously, this thing is slow!

Behold the monstrocity in-browser here.
