Chapter 31. Web Graphic Formats > Portable Network Graphics (PNG)

Portable Network Graphics (PNG)

Another file format supported by some Web browsers, including Internet Explorer 4.0b1 and later and Netscape Navigator 4.04 and later is the Portable Network Graphics format, PNG for short. While it's still not widely supported by many graphic tools, it is felt that PNG offers even better compression than a GIF.

Caution

Despite the fact that 4.0-generation browsers have chosen to support the PNG format, that support is sometimes buggy. The biggest perpetrator of this is Netscape Navigator. As a result, using PNG for Internet-based Web sites is, at this time, risky at best.
