RE[2]: 1MiB+ jpeg?

PNG is a losless format, JPEG is not. that's why PNG's are bigger. But maybe you want to check the PNG compression rate, not all apps compress the PNG file to the optimum...

Screenshots, IE, and transparany are no problem at all because screenshots should not use transparancy. Anyway, IE only has transparancy problems if you use multiple alpha channels for your PNG file.

Microsoft just doesn't like PNG that much, on the other hand: you can store PNG files from MS Paint.
