    It’s an essential addon to WordPress core. Unfortunately, SVG support still not available ☹️

    Now can we get support for the .jfif variation of JPEGs? For some reason many images I’ve been getting off of my browser to use has this extension, but WordPress won’t recognize.

    WebP is also an option when using the LiteSpeed Cache plugin, in fact I am using them since a long time. Fully automatic.

    Does this also add a jpeg fallback to uploaded webp images (as picture element)?

      Yes. WebP will be loaded only on those browsers which support it. An incompatible browser will show original version (PNG or JPEG).

      No, it looks like this will not be the case, according to the dev note (linked to in the article). If you upload a WebP, it will show WebP image without a fallback to JPEG or PNG. There is a discussion about considering adding a possible fallback solution for unsupported browsers (the picture element), but that’s not guaranteed. But there may be plugins that can help you provide a fallback.

    Hopefully SVG next. This is handy for folks whose hosting does not already do this. Most hosts SiteGround etc have been doing this for years.

    Now Adobe’s turn, so we could actually design using webp. Or maybe Adobe will bring us .avif first, a better option in all the studies that I’ve seen.
