Add modern File Types like JPEG 2000, JPEG XR and WebP

The Loading Time would be much faster. Google Page Speed say that it could be 7 seconds faster with this modern File types.

Admin Note:
Due to limited browser support, it's unlikely that we'll build the ability to use JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, or WebP until there's full browser support.

    Hi guys - This thread is almost 3 years old.

    We all know about the importance of SEO to website owners and we all know that page speed is one of many core ranking factors - highlighted by Google pushing webmasters everywhere to aspire to achieving the standards laid out in their Core Web Vitals.

    It's been said by lots of users already; images play a big role in how fast a page loads for a user - and supporting .webp would be a big step in the right direction for us all and for every user who happens to visit a site built with WebFlow.

    According to https://caniuse.com/ .webp support is now greater than .gif which is supported by WebFlow.

    I can see why you might choose to wait for .avif (unless you can also come up with an elegant fallback solution).

    .png - 97.85% of global users.

    .svg - 97.81% of global users.

    .AVIF - 68.86% of global users.

    .webp - 94.25% of global users.

    .gif - 93.41% of global users.

    Every client understands the importance of a fast loading site for users, and more and more are asking for site designers and developers to achieve 90+ scores on Core Web Vitals in their site build briefs.

    So, can you at least provide a view from the WebFlow product management as to when, if ever, this might be rolled-out?

    Finally, you can use the WebP and even AVIF Image Format in Stacket today: https://stacket.app/


    You can benefit from the WebP or the AVIF (even smaller images) Automatic Compression without any Webflow Image Modifications!

    It is time.


    WebP now enjoys universal support and is a key recommendation from Google PageSpeed Insights for improving page scores, particularly on mobile.

    +1 to Brent's comment - WebP support is widespread enough to justify support by Webflow.

  • Ezekiel Rochat commented

    Yes!

    note to admins above - browser support is no longer 'limited' https://caniuse.com/webp

    just noticed cloudflare will convert all images to webp on the fly but you need to pay for a pro membership. It'd be great if Webflow would do this for us, it would speed up all webflow sites substantially and get better SEO scores for everyone. It's a win-win! Please UPVOTE people!

    Seriously, i can't believe that Webflow does not support this absolute standard function in 2021. You advertise Webflow with things like "Search engines love us" but then you are not able to add such a basic function? I mean it's not a big deal, "limited browser support" is outdated - all of them support it now and who cares about the like 5 people in the world that use too old browsers? They are used to have issues... Image optimization is SEO standard now and and it is about time that Webflow adds this little, important function!
