    WebP is great for lossless image compression (much better than the current 'de facto' lossless standard which is PNG), AVIF is likely going to be great for lossy image compression.

      For Windows users only!
      About that: At time of writing, Mozilla still haven't enabled dav1d's assembly optimizations on Windows: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1521062

      I hope someone just forgot to update the issue tracker, instead of breaking YouTube for Windows users…

        I guess it's time to dance on the grave of JPEG and PNG, and I'm glad the time has finally come, as I've been waiting for years for this to happen.

          That sucks, I hope CSD can be disabled in about:config, CSS, or that the Menu>Customize>Title Bar option is still present. I really don't want to drop Firefox over something as silly as forced CSD...but I just do not like the CSD style or look nor do I like the extra steps of the hamburger over a File Edit Options Help header. I feel about CSD the way a lot of people feel about systemd.

          IMHO, CSD can be fine for simple stuff and programs that are very well laid out, probably by a dedicated design team; but programs with lots of advanced settings can become jumbled messes and compacting everything into the hamburger is damn annoying...might as well just hide the hamburger in a right click menu or a long press hidden menu if we're that worried about screen space.

          CSD reminds me of using a car with a crappy menu system on the radio -- it adds extra steps and layers to make stuff seem more organized when all it really does is slows down one's workflow by adding all those extra clicks and steps to find stuff. At least that's my impression of CSD from a mouse user's perspective. It's also damn annoying when you go to drag a window around and you click the wrong part of the CSD header because an extra tab ate up grab space.

          Personally, on displays over 13" with at least a 768 verticle resolution, CSD makes no sense whatsoever. Most of my QT programs can be configured to use less space with a minimal sized titlebar and the default File Edit header than GTK CSD programs use with everything combined. It's amazing how much space can be saved by tweaking KDE's default font sizes and KWin's title bar size.

            skeevy420 I disagree. Fedora and Ubuntu is a smooth sail. More consistent than ever as themes just work and headerbar designs are taking over.

                The env var I understand, but browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar... I thought that setting only worked on Windows?

                  Who cares, especially about compression being slower? For decompression, bandwidth tends to be the limiting factor by far.

                  I never heard of FLIF before, but sounds like a super format, thanks for the link.

                    Almost, but not quite yet. Wait until the next Firefox ESR release.

                      That's what everyone said about mp3 too, and that shit is still here and popular for no reason.
