I was going to write a piece on this during the Keynote on Wednesday. I just ran out of time before an appointment. So techcrunch.com beat me to it. They did an awesome write up check it out. WebP
This is technology moving us forward. Many people like myself are on a carrier that has a data cap. So optimizing data use is huge, not just for the carriers but also to the user. Not only will this use less it will allow your phone to load information quicker. Another advantage to this is by cutting data usage it will allow the user to consume more data. Which is great for bloggers like myself who dont want mobile visitors worrying about my site using too much of their data. Just a thought. Love all the new tech being released. The future is upon us.
