Web standards never sleep

As we wait for ratification/adoption of  HTTP3 news arrives of a new image format promising a 50% reduction in size compared with JPEG; AV1.

There's nothing more I can add to Daniel Aleksandersen's analysis published on but to say that support is coming soon in Firefox and already available in Chrome.

When it will be available in Edge and Safari still seems a bi of a mystery - they took a lot longer to adopt webp, but since Microsoft's browser now uses a lot of Chrome under the hood, it might appear a lot quicker there. has a test page with links to additional resources.

AV1 also does video.
