    Google adds WebP support to Gmail, Picasa and Chrome

    I am surprised nobody mentioned this yet.

    For more info on WebP, check the old thread about the first release of the open source format.

    There is an interesting discussion on bugzilla about why Mozilla isn't adopting it yet: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=600919

    man, reading that bugzilla log has lost me half an hour of my life I won't be getting back.

    It's interesting their POV as to why not to add it, but it's also interesting the counter arguments. Not sure which side to side with so I will remain a fence sitter but I suspect I'm leaning towards the camp that are pushing to provide support for the format.

    Yeah, I had the same feeling.
