I am trying to view a large SVG files (about 20 MB). I tried using squiggle from batik, but it has been rendering for at least 20 minutes without producing any results. A similar file about half the size rendered in under a minute.

If I drag it into a Chrome tab, it appears to render it, but at a size of about 5mm x 5mm, so it looks like a solid rectangle. Ctrl-+ does not make it bigger.

The file is a graph produced by fdp from graphviz. There are tens of thousands of nodes, each filled with one of about 8 colors and several lines of text. There are a similar number of arrows connecting the nodes.

What program would work well for rendering this? I have access to Windows or Linux.

Adobe Illustrator can open/edit/save SVG. You can download a free 30-day trial here.
