This talk explores the changes of the tag from the original lowsrc attribute used by Netscape to the modern Responsive Images specification. Each evolution of the market and evolution of the img has added more complexity to supporting images. This talk explores how to reduce the complexity and maximize delivery performance of images.

In this talk we will explore:

  • Responsive images
  • New(er) image formats and mobile devices such as WebP and Jpeg2000
  • Client hints
  • Image transcoders

This keynote is sponsored by Akamai
