A new image format for photos which uses lossy compression which has been developed by Google, it claims to be able to create files that are over 30% smaller than normal jpeg images.

The file consists of the image data that has been encoded using the VP8 codec and a Riff container. The format uses predictive coding when encoding the image.

The format is supported by Google Chrome natively and by using plug-ins also by the Internet Explorer and Opera 11.

Files that use WebP have the .webp file extension and are known as WebP image Files.
