Usually better compression  means more cpu power to compress and decompress. How much slower is that process with webp ?

It will need the following items:

- An option for lossless compression

- A compression/quality ratio at least as good as JPG

- 24bit color or higher support

- Support for alpha (transparency)

- Support for animation

If it has those items, I'd support it, because there is no major image format that does all those things together. If not, I'll pass. We dont need to re-invent the wheel. I would be pretty happy just seeing PNG embraced more.

Yes, I'd use it.

Sure I would use it however, the new format must keep at least the same amount of image quality and be ICM color space compliant (sRGB).

They need to learn how to manage the image size/quality first between their own google contacts and google android smartphones before tackling this. Period.

I wonder what the image quality will be like between the two...
