    I recently found out about the webp format and after converting a single png image, I realized the size went down to 64KB from 720KB which is obviously huge. I kept comparing the images but couldn’t really tell there was a difference in the quality. The only downside I see is that this format is only supported by 85% of all used browsers but I assume this won’t be an issue if I implement a fallback to PNG images. So are there any drawbacks which I haven’t encountered yet or is the compatibility the only issue? – by /hq/Bozhidar95 – –
