- APNG is supported in Firefox and Safari
- Chrome is adding support (https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=437662)
- Feature request #106865 was WONTFIXed.
- APNG is not listed in the Platform Status page.
Maybe reconsider adding support, in light of cross-browser support?
In any case, could APNG support be added (maybe as “Not currently planned”) to the Platform Status page?
Chrome 59 supports APNG. So, Edge is the last browser which doesn’t have support APNG. As always, Edge is the last.
This is beyond tiresome. I can sort of understand why MS wouldn’t want to add .WebP as its a Google controlled codec meant to undermine MPEG LA.
But .apng would be useful on social media. Because right now everyone is making independent work arounds basically wrapping video files into containers like Imgur and their .gifv that’s basically an .mp4. They also support .webm just like Gfycat. Gfycat will use .webm with a .gif fallback. And because I use Windows Mobile 10 phones and I can’t even say screw it because it will affect my use as well.
Come on Microsoft, this format has been around for years. Its time to add it in.
Any news on this?
Add support to this codec, because of global gif replacement. It looks only Microsoft is behind other modern browsers. It has support for more colors and performance optimization potential.
There’s a suggestion on uservoice for this: https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/6513393-apng-animated-png-images-support-firefox-and-sa
But we’re not getting a response there, other than a dot…
It says "Under review", but is it really under review? Can we get a better response than this?
