WebP is the new Google image file format for the Web
WebP (pronounced "weppy") is the new Google image file format to replace the defacto standard right now: JPEG like in .jpg
The image below in the WebP format has a 75.66% smaller file size compared to its .jpg counterpart displayed here. Its size is approx. 50 kb - that would be just 12.5 kb. Common browsers can't display WebP yet. That's why I can show you the .jpg version only.
