“So, is WebP better than JPEG?…Since most of the time WebP is used alongside JPEG fallback, by using WebP you will…double your storage costs with little benefit.”

Interesting article! I think the photo versus illustration point is an important one. WebP is great for this scenario and much smaller in file size than PNG in my experience.

Yup, for sure! I thought this article was interesting because many people I’d talked to assumed WebP was always smaller so this was a good counterpoint suggesting it can vary.
