Safari is going to support mp4s in img tags. They display 20x faster than gifs, and no pronunciation controversies!

Colin Bendell on a new feature in Safari Technology Preview:

Now you can in Safari Technology Preview

Early results show mp4s in tags display 20x faster and decode 7x faster than the GIF equivalent — in addition to being 1/14th the file size!

Background CSS video & Responsive Video can now be a “thing”.

Finally cinemagraphs without the downsides of GIFs!

Now we wait for the other browsers to catch-up: This post is 46 MB on Chrome but 2 MB in Safari TP

It’ll take a few years for this to catch on web-wide, but the benefits are massive. It’s really rather ridiculous how popular the GIF format is in 2017.

> In the latest Safari Tech Preview, thanks to some hard work by Jer Noble, we can now use MP4 files in <img> tags. The intended use case is not long-form video, but micro-form, muted, looping video – just like GIFs.
