WebP support finally works

WebP image codec

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.

I grew up on a tough neighborhood and am not a privileged guy, my true nature is violent, even if I try to hide it because I'm not proud of it. I try to overcome my violent nature by learning more about geeky things like batteries, but I'm far from being an expert and don't pretend to be one. I also graduated in Sociology, to learn more about others and pacify myself.
