A Blog Post for GameBanana

Today we added an emergency WEBP fallback to JPG. It is bit of a hack and hopefully we can remove it in a year or two when Apple finally gets off their ass (or their high horse) and implements WEBP support like every other browser. Thanks to Tenryuu for pointing out that even Chrome, Firefox and Opera, while having WEBP support normally, do not on iOS devices because they must implement Apple Safari's version of Webkit. This means there's a lot more traffic affected that I first realized (about 6%). How annoying. Unfortunately Safari has become the new Internet Explorer, holding the development of internet standards back.

Also made other minor fixes:
  • Fixed the new tooltip appearing in new pages after clicking links
  • Game headers now have more height

    Hi tom!

    I wonder.. these changes will take place after the server reboot, won't they? The images I submit are still being converted to WEBP.

    Thanks, I use an old Firefox before the big changes that broke add-ons and made it multi-process IIRC and WEBP wasn't working.
