How JPEG XL Compares to Other Image Codecs

With many competing image formats available, it's not always easy to know which one(s) we have to use to provide both the best performance and visual quality to Web users.

With Responsive Web Design, it's even more difficult[1], with the need to provide multiple renditions of these images, at different dimensions, and sometimes even different ratios.

Jon Sneyers — creator of the FLIF format, one of JPEG XL inspirations — shows here how JPEG XL could help reduce complexity with native support for much better compression, great visual quality AND native responsiveness.

Let's hope browsers implement it fast when it reaching a stable status!

    The Case for JPEG XL

    Jon gives a good overview of everything JPEG XL improves over other image formats. This article can be seen by some as biaised, as Jon is part of the team that created the format, but I really think it honestly shows clear advantages, and I hope it will help people understand JPEG XL support in browsers would be great.
