WebP support

Hello cédric,

I would like to know if you plan to include WebP in pingo?

no, this is out of the scope

Why? Both WebP's lossless and lossy are much better than PNG and JPEG. It could be nice to include pingo :

Lossless : https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/docs/webp_lossless_alpha_study
Lossy : https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/docs/webp_study

Lossy : https://developers.google.com/speed/webp/docs/webp_study

i think a careful selection of tools/samples/settings could show something more fair. anyway if you still want WebP, i suggest you use their tools

I don't see what's unfair. I run my own tests and WebP is always better than PNG. It's time to leave PNG and JPEG for a new format. Please re-consider WebP.
