Who could get by on a laptop with just the web? I, like many people, thought Chromebooks wouldn't appeal to anyone.

But 7 years after the first Chromebook, Google's browser-based OS is still with us. And, much to everyone's surprise, it's going stronger than ever.

The reason for that, primarily, is the browser-focused laptops turned out to be ideal terminals for students accessing web applications.

Microsoft Edge is coming to Android and iOS

Microsoft's browsers, for the most part, have been limited to the company's own operating systems. There are exceptions to this, such as the short-lived Internet Explorer for Mac, but that has been the general rule.

Animated PNG format: How does it compare to Animated WebP and GIF?

The Graphics Interchange Format was initially developed by CompuServe in 1987, and has become a staple of the internet. However, GIFs have some limitations, and many sites have switched to using HTML5 video in WebM or MP4 format (such as Gfycat, Imgur, Twitter, and others).

There are a few competing formats that are designed to overcome the problems of GIFs, namely Animated PNG and Animated WebP. Now that Chrome 59 (currently in beta) supports both formats, it's worth discussing - which is better?
