WebP support finally works

WebP image codec

 

Website’s load is now reduced by almost 50 %.

 

Previously I informed you that the website’s images were also available in WebP format, as you can see it here.

But because of some incompatibility with one website’s theme function, it wasn’t working. Now I’ve disabled that function and it’s working great.

 

The front page’s average size – with all its images and scripts – is now reduced from 1,9 MB to 1 MB, this is almost 50 % less.

 

As I previously wrote, I recommend the Google Chrome browser so you can enjoy surfing the Web faster. You can also use Android’s default browser and Opera since they support WebP.

 

If you already use a browser that supports WebP but you’re getting images in JPEG/PNG format, emptying your browser’s cache will solve this problem.

 

I hope you now enjoy a faster blog 🙂

 

Any problem, please let me know in the comment section below.

More than natural resources, are wasted human resources that bothers me the most. That’s why I’m a strong advocate of a society based on cooperation, not competition, that helps every individual to reach his full potential so that he can contribute back to society. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”.
