Vivaldi JPEG XL support


Those who are interested will find an introduction explaining Vivaldi and JPEG XL below for SEO purposes. You can jump to the tutorial on how to enable JPEG XL support on Vivaldi by clicking here.

What is JPEG XL?

JPEG XL is a professional image delivery format that is useful for web photographers and web designers. Additionally, it supports images with a high bit depth in addition to wide color gamuts and high dynamic ranges. Among the many features of JPEG XL are animation, alpha channels, layers, thumbnails, lossless decoding, and progressive decoding.

The image quality and compression ratio of JPEG XL are significantly better than those of legacy JPEG. JPEGs created in the past can be quickly converted to the new format by implementing lossless JPEG recompression.

The JPEG XL format supports lossless and lossy compression. Lossless compression tends to reduce filesizes by 20-60%. Encoding and decoding can be computationally efficient using software implementations.

What is Vivaldi?

Vivaldi is a freeware, cross-platform web browser developed by Vivaldi Technologies, founded by former Opera CEO and co-founder Tatsuki Tomita. On April 6, 2016, Vivaldi was officially launched.

The program is intended to be used by anyone. Still, its primary audience is technical users who might have been disgruntled by Opera's switch from its Presto layout engine to a Chromium-based browser. Even though Vivaldi is also based on Chrome, it aims to revive the features of the Presto-based Opera.

Vivaldi has more than 2.3 million active users as of September 2021.

What are Vivaldi Flags?

Flags represent Vivaldi features that are currently being developed. Those can be found in the hidden settings menu accessible from the navigation bar. A flag must be set for JPEG XL, so the functionality is disabled by default. It is not known when Vivaldi's default behavior will include JPEG XL support.
