AVIF has landed (JPEG replacement?)

Year old news. My apologies for posting in the Retouching forum; this might be more appropriate somewhere else, although I can't think where.

My feeling about WebP is that it's generally better than JPEG, especially at saving space, but at higher JPEG quality levels there's no big advantage in WebP. Lossless WebP is larger than PNG, so it seems pointless. It didn't seem worth the trouble to convert my website, although WebP is generally supported everywhere now.

My preliminary feeling is that AVIF is worth the trouble, once generally supported.

To see AVIF images on this web page, you'll need a recent version of Google Chrome (in Sept 2021), rather than Safari or Firefox.
