Google A few months ago, Google open sourced the VP8 video codec as part of the WebM video project, to create a truly Free/free unencumbered video format for the web as an answer to the non-Free/free patent-encumbered H264 format. Today, Google launched a new image format for the web, WebP, which aims to significantly reduce the file size of photos and images on the web.

By "Wasn't as obvious" you mean "wasn't there"? I think you guys are succumbing to the audiophile effect ("yeah, it definitely has more clarity and depth").

If I flick between them there is zero visible difference. I checked in matlab and the difference is really really really small (actually over half the pixels are identical).
