            • I think one of the biggest issues is that WordPress doesn’t yet allow them as uploads. It seems that people are content with it being an additional optional delivery method for those who support it. A JIT for saving bandwidth, if you will.

            • Fair. It seems people are content with the lowest common denominator formats, anyway. It allows site owners and others to provide the best experience for the end user, based on reported compatibility, which I feel is better than forcing one format.

            • You may check https://optimus.io/ – looks kinda fair to me and implementing this server side is a piece of cake. I mean via API 🙂 I’m aware that they have a WordPress plugin as well.

            • That looks like a nice service. I actually use Shortpixel on this site. Same idea, upload into WordPress, optimize, replace with optimized media. ShortPixel actually allows serving up optimized WebP images on demand/support.
