    Phoronix: WebP Image Support Appears Ready For Firefox 65

    After Microsoft added support for the WebP image format to their Edge browser last month, Mozilla is finally preparing to ship the Firefox browser with support for WebP. If all goes well, Firefox 65 will support WebP!..

    Is there any image format based on Daala? WebP was heavily criticized in the past, and it doesn't look like it got any better.

      I would like to see support for:
      • Wayland
      • CSS font 'system-ui' (native platform font)
      • <dialog> element.
      • Input type datetime-local, week, and month for <input> elements.

        <dialog> support should be landing soon, it's been available under an about:config flag for a while now.

            So what? systemd and Wayland were also criticized.
            Being criticized != being bad.
            I for one like WebP a lot, it's better than GIF and PNG, has a lot better API, and those who criticized it were mainly either misinformed or stupid (just like those guys who were defending X11 over Wayland). I didn't see any valid set of arguments proving PNG or GIF are better than WebP other than WebP not yet being supported which isn't a fair argument.

              It means there can be better.

                I, personally, prefer APNG!

                  Why add an obsolete format? They should focus on AVIF instead.

                    I thought it already had WebP support? I recall an effort in 2014/15 to bring WebP support to Firefox, was that the effort that was cancelled?
