As you can see, no browser supports all formats. There is at least one type for each browser:
- WebP has the widest support: Edge, Firefox, Chrome;
- JPEG XR only works in IE11 (which will soon be End Of Life).
- JPEG2000 is only supported by Safari.
In principle, you can currently offer a suitable solution for all visitors. However, the use of so many different types makes it technically more complicated to find the appropriate format for each browser.
Webp, the winner?
In the release notes of Safari 14 we find a small sentence that will change the situation: "Added WebP image support. Safari 14 will be part of macOS 11 and iOS 14 and will be released in the fall of 2020.
This will ensure that all browsers with a significant market share support Webp, which in turn will encourage web developers to include this in their solutions.
