What if you chose a promising format and suddenly saw the message
Browsers no longer support JPEG XL images
This happened in 2022 to Google Chrome uses, when the Chrome team decided to discontinue native browser support of the image format JPEG XL.
It is very likely that browsers will continue to support JPEG (JPEG 1) and PNG. However, new formats with much better compression, expanded features, and no licensing issues are constantly being developed. As examples, there is increasing, but not yet global, support for the Alliance for Open Media’s AVIF  image format and Google’s WebP format, and there is always the potential that browsers, as well as apps, will choose to drop support of certain image – or other – media formats.
If you lose browser support of data formats you have several options:
Option 1    Keep your data in its original format and created a converted format for browser display
  • A version of your content remains in its original form.

  • No searching for a plug-in.

  • Websites or apps  need to be re-implemented with the new format.

  • Additional storage and content management is required

Option 2  Convert your data to a new, more popular format.
  • Immediate browser or app support without  extensive plug-in searches.

  • Websites or apps  need to be re-implemented with the new format.

  • Potential content loss during the conversion process.

  • Possibility that the new format will also fall out of favor.

Option 3   Use the Bevara access pipeline generator for display
  • Immediate support in popular browsers without plug-ins with adjustable interface.

  • No risk of losing platform-independence.

  • Data stays in its native format. No conversion loss.

  • Low risk that underlying pipeline may eventually lose browser support; however, a simple element replace will maintain format support
