Firefox for Android is pretty great these days, and it's about to get a bit better. Firefox 65 just entered the beta channel, and it includes support for a long-awaited web feature — WebP images.
WebP is an image format developed by Google, and is based on the VP8 video codec used by WebM. It supports both lossy and lossless compression, making it a competitor to JPEG and PNG, respectively. Chrome has been able to view WebP images since 2011, but progress in Firefox has been slow-moving. At long last, WebP support is enabled by default, starting with the beta release of Firefox 65.
