    Incorporate in what way?

    I think browser support needs to pick up before software such as XenForo should implement it.

    Avatar's mostly, maybe attachments.

    Definitely. And there's no guarantee that it will become a "standard". After nearly 3 years, there still isn't much support for it.

    "WebP is supported by a variety of tools. In addition, it is now natively supported in Google Chrome, theGoogle Chrome Frameplug-in for Internet Explorer, Opera 11.10 and Android Ice Cream Sandwich."

    That has nothing to do with what I posted. However, it isn't supported on iOS (at all) or FireFox, which has quite a big market share.

    Apparently there's a js shim that can be installed to support it in Firefox. Still doesn't mean it's ready for prime time and wide spread support. Personally, I think it's another Google idea that's not going to go anywhere.

    If you really want something like this just use ngx_pagespeed (or mod_pagespeed) and let it take care of it automatically.

    For my site, avatars are served inline in webp format to Chrome and other supported browsers, while others get optimized png/jpegs.

    Hopefully this isn't another failure like APNG...
