WebP for Magento

Google has developed WebP - a replacement for GIF, JPG and PNG, which reduces the size of your images. Implement it in Magento and save bandwidth.

WebP is a image-format - developed by Google - aimed to reduce the size of images dramatically. While still in development, WebP-images already allow you to reduce the size of JPG or PNG images. Unfortunately, the WebP image-format is at this moment only supported by a small number of browsers.

This extension integrates WebP into Magento, and adds WebP images to the page if the browser supports it. Browser support for WebP is detected based on a simple user-agent check (Chrome browser) and an additional JavaScript detection. If WebP is detected, the extension will parse the HTML-output of the Magento root-block to make sure links to supported images (png, jpg, jpeg) are actually replaced with WebP images. 

Demo

You can see a demo of the WebP extension for Magento by visiting the Yireo demo-site http://magento1.yireo-demo.com/ with a WebP-enabled browser. Currently the Chrome browser supports WebP out of the box, while for Firefox there is a WebP plugin available.
