Image file format created by Google to be used on web pages with the intention of reducing image file sizes and therefore speeding up the Internet.

Pronounced 'Weppy', the file format is based on open-source compression (VP8) and a RIFF container format. The format itself is lossy, meaning a tiny amount of image quality is lost after each edit.
