I’m personally a big fan of the compression approach as mentioned in the article. For JPEGs it has little to no cons and many pros. It works today.

In fact, it works so well that I find it superior to any new markup solution for which we have to wait years. As well-intended at those initiatives are, a single image approach will always work better in my belief. Ideally, that logic is in the browser or the format. We are very far away from that, so in the meanwhile I wonder if the compression trick isn’t favorable over new markup, at least for JPEGs.
