    Google doesn't even support WebP in half its products. The entire G-Suite line of products does not support WebP (Docs, Slides, Sheets, Etc..). Last I checked was in June, but I'd be surprised if things have changed.

      VVC in HEIF would go nowhere just as HEVC in HEIF is going nowhere. It's not a better option when no one will support it just as is the case with HEVC in HEIF.

        Get back to me when Mozilla Corp wants to build a good browser instead of crappy browser that they're hell bent on destroying and driving away every last user at every turn.

          Uh huh, and the guy who's pleasing the girl you want is “just a meathead”. ;+ )

            I'd be interested to see hat JXL-style lossless transcoding of JPEG to AVIF would look like, I think it should technically be possible (?).

              In my case, exactly zero times. I have no time nor use for Apple.

                I doubt it. The lossless JPEG transcoding doesn't magically convert it into a VarDCT JPEG-XL image. It is a separate, special mode for backwards compatibility.

                  so is chromium, which supports avif. firefox is too busy hyping rust

                    you aren't supposed measure it, "written in rust" dwarfs everything else in importance

                      I mean, it's a special mode for the transcoder, sure, but surely the same principle (choose the equivalent block size, and then code the residuals) applies?
