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.

Thanks to the Datatypes system of AmigaOS 4, the WebP format is already avalaibale and working with older browsers (IBrowse or OWB) and with more recent ones (NetSurf) but unfortunately not with OWB since the latter doesn't make use of datatypes.

Moreover, every paint programs or picture viewer can now display WebP images.
