Mozilla launches new JPEG encoder that reduces file size 10% on average

JPEG has been attacked from all sides, yet it remains (for a variety of reasons) the main digital image format on the interwebs. So the good digital hippies at Mozilla decided to help squeeze some compression juice out of JPEGs. They launched today, as a Version 1.0 project, a new JPEG encoder, Mozipeg, that on average reduces JPEG file size by 10%. The estimate is based on 1500 sample images from Wikimedia. The project is introduced at the Mozilla blog and is available for all to see and compile and hack at Github. Source code is included!
