Soon™? Google works on an optimized JPEG web image format named PIK

Postby LigH1L » Thu Nov 16, 2017 10:25 am

https://github.com/google/pik

The goal is to compress images more than 50% better than JPEG in visually lossless quality (freeze planned at 65% better compression efficiency), while decreasing decoding speed only less than 50%.

It uses a combination of two other Google projects with funny Swiss pastry related names: Butteraugli (HVS-aware image differences) and Guetzli (JPEG encoder with denser packing).

Current implementations don't require AVX2 and FMA anymore, but still expect SSE4; this CPU feature threshold may drop further during the development.

So, no hurry yet :coffee: but keep it in mind, some day it will probably be supported in Chrome.

This is how Google rolls! They create one thing, and then few years later something else for the same purpose. Remember Anguar1 and Angular2.
This is software pollution. They do not do it right the first time.
