    WebP hasn't taken off quite like WebM/VP8
    Facebook is a big supporter of WebP.

    • WebP -- an image format
    • Jingle -- multimedia interactions over XMPP
    • WebRTC -- a real-time communication API
    • SPDY -- a proposal for HTTP 2.0
    • Dart -- a web programming language
    • Protocol Buffers -- an interprocess/program communications mechanism
    • QUIC -- connection-oriented transport on UDP, trying to be "better" than TCP

    Webp sounds nice until you talk with the experts. At this moment most websites including the big top 100 websites use badly optimized jpg. When you optimize jpg the difference with webp becomes really small. If these websites don't take the time to optimize they don't care about file size.
    On the other hand if browsers begin supporting another file format they have to develop, debug, update, test, support this new format with almost no benefit.
