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.

Well, unless you have decided that this particular random guy on the interwebs are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT in his assessment despite only offering his own subjective perception then that comment really decided nothing.


You are of course 100% correct in that observation, but please remember that is is Google themselves that started this nonsense with comparing some random samples and made a gallery biased to make it look like WebP is "much" better than jpeg.
If in fact it is not much better but just a little better, would you use it?
