CSS mix blend mode & SVG for dynamically colored, fixed UI navigation

Scroll all the way up and down to see how this SVG button dynamically changes as the background image moves behind it from light to dark.

This example includes a replacement inline SVG in black as a fallback for the lack of support mix-blend-mode in Microsoft Edge & IE.

This background shows how this method is especially useful for a UI where the color behind the SVG button changes dramatically between light and dark. Mix blend mode solves for the problem of a lack of contrast from a button that uses only one color.
