Hello Folks….!!!

An another day came when we came back to spread the word of Mozilla with new comers and awesome people.

Event had been started at 10:00 AM by our Rep Mr. Ram Dayal. He told about the Mozilla and event.

Mozilla’s mozjpeg Project

JPEG has been in use since around 1992. It’s the most popular lossy compressed image format on the Web, and has been for a long time. Nearly every photograph on the Web is served up as a JPEG. It’s the only lossy compressed image format which has achieved nearly universal compatibility, not just with Web browsers but all software that can display images.

The number of photos displayed by the average Web site has grown over the years, as has the size of those photos. HTML, JS, and CSS files are relatively small in comparison, which means photos can easily make up the bulk of the network traffic for a page load. Reducing the size of these files is an obvious goal for optimization.

Production JPEG encoders have largely been stagnant in terms of compression efficiency, so replacing JPEG with something better has been a frequent topic of discussion. The major downside to moving away from JPEG is that it would require going through a multi-year period of relatively poor compatibility with the world’s deployed software. Mozilla doesn’t doubt that algorithmic improvements will make this worthwhile at some point, possibly soon. Even after a transition begins in earnest though, JPEG will continue to be used widely.

Given this situation, Mozilla wondered if JPEG encoders have really reached their full compression potential after 20+ years. Mozilla talked to a number of engineers, and concluded that the answer is “no,” even within the constraints of strong compatibility requirements. With feedback on promising avenues for exploration in hand, Mozilla started the ‘mozjpeg’ project.
