WebP is growing in popularity so I am always in the lookout to use modern standard and formats. I was disheartened to see that there's no way to add webp in my WordPress, unless i cam across this plugin. This works exactly as advertised, it's seamless and hassle free, there's no overhead. Pleasantly surprised to discover such a nifty plugin, I hope this gets continuous development.
