    This would an amazing enhancement for attachments, especially for sites that use many large pictures.
    GD (PHP 5.5) and ImageMagick are supporting WebP. This could be made as option available if PHP 5.5+ is detected. Many of us already use PHP 5.5 anyways.

    A test I performed, to compare the sizes. JPG files are already compressed (unlike PNG) and WebP managed to squeeze another 8KB out of the picture without losing any quality.

    JPG - 170KB


    WebP - 162KB

    Would be nice indeed if more web apps natively supported WebP :)

    My Xenforo forum is already setup to auto convert jpg/png images to webp for support browsers only via Nginx Pagespeed module and there's huge savings to be had for bandwidth as well as page speed.

    Nice savings to be had ~38% according to my pagespeed stats below

    Definitely would be appreciated. Now supported by Chrome, Firefox, and the latest versions of Safari as well! Edge too!
