As far as I was aware, Bridge could generate previews of any file it could open in any of your installed Adobe programs, with very few exceptions. So why is SVG being left out? Illustrator, Photoshop and Dreamweaver can open these files, so why can't Bridge show us something?
Bridge is a fantastic tool for people who need to manage a lot of images. And that's what SVGs are: images. More and more are people sharing SVG illustrations and icon packs. This format bridges a gap between web developers and artists, in addition to improving user experience by offering sharp images on both desktop and mobile platforms.
Why should we have to download additional software to manage these collections? One of Adobe's biggest goals has always been to streamline your workflow by improving integration between their programs. Please keep up with the changing times and offer support in Bridge for this growing file format.
For Windows users, whilst Adobe continues to scratch its head/procrastinate further you can install this free extension in the meantime which enables SVG preview in Windows Explorer: https://svgextension.codeplex.com/releases/view/118790

I don't think so. They said they were going to get it functioning without improvements first, and then we could hope to see some redesign. We should be at that place now, minus getting the AOM to be a real part of the install instead of an add-on. So maybe next version we'll see some difference? Hopefully being able to leverage uploading to the Adobe Stock site will in fact give Adobe management even more incentive to provide resources to Bridge, but I'm afraid we'll have to wait longer before we see if that's true or not.
It is, after all, the only really logical hub for uploading vector and video, as well as photos, JPEG and PNG to the Stock site. I'm still hopeful. . .

Bridge CS6 don't generate Thumbnail from SVG files...
It was working in CS3... could it be an installation problem ?
Come on, Adobe ! Give Bridge some modern web care
and general CC love (not just Stock) !! Bridge feels left out...
You just keep ignoring the importance of SVG to this internet everyone is talking about and we keep using multiple asset management apps - it's that simple and so much more fun anyway...
I find it all hard to understand, especially since Adobe co-invented the SVG:
BTW, what I also find EXTREMELY annoying is that Bridge, after all these years, is still not capable of properly previewing graphics with transparency! I mean, come on Adobe! How can this be so hard?
Photoshop has been using the checkerboard grid to indicate transparent areas in images FOR AGES! Why is this feature still not available (at least as an option) within Bridge?! Sometimes it seems to be the most obvious features that need the longest to implement...
