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.

You do realize that the sample image is a lossless PNG shot of the WebP image, so you can check it out quality-wise in your current browser.

Not even Chrome supports WebP rendering yet.

Why do people say "You do realize" when they know the person didn't realize. You don't need to be a bitch about it

Well, no harm was meant here, excuse me if it seemed so.
(I am not a native English speaker, and as such, I do not have a good sense of wording and phrases.)

In case you find it offensive, pls just take it like it was "Note, that ..."
