Oh great. Now we'll have websites sending JPEG files with a .png extension... not to mention what the file-type will actually be with such a mix-up... and how each and every browser/version will react to that mess.

They couldn't take the time to go through the HTML files and modify extension!?!?

Seems like a pretty silly action. Don't most modern browsers support png? I know the whole gif patent ran out or something so the reason fro png being invented was rendered mute but it is still just a better format.

I had 200 kb of images on multiple pages bloat to 1 MB.
