I've created similar ticket in the Chromium bugtracker:
The main advantage of the arithmetic coded JPEGs over other new formats is that you can recompress all your JPEGs losslessly. And often it reduces the size of an image for even more than 10%.

It’s on the backlog, but not currently planned.
We know many of you would like to be able to accelerate your numerical analysis code via CUDA/OpenCL, etc.
One thing to explore in the meantime is to try running your code in Windows. Windows actually has very powerful GPU-acceleration capabilities and you may well find that much of your existing code may well work already or require trivial effort to port to Windows itself.
in the meantime, bear with us, and UPVOTE THIS ISSUE if you care (please don’t create another duplicate ask – that doesn’t help us prioritize asks).

Changing to “Fine Feedback” – thanks for additional input. Vote away! ;)
Chromium developers are implementing APNG support:
APNG support for Chromium: https://codereview.chromium.org/1250373006/
There are only ≈500 additional lines of code.
The OGG container format is currently under consideration https://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/oggcontainer
Opus is now in preview builds behind a flag. Please see https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2016/04/18/webm-vp9-and-opus-support-in-microsoft-edge/
Are you planning to support Opus in the <audio> tag? This format is very useful in many cases.

Yep, this would be really cool. Not just for URLs, but things like paths too. Script emits a path to an error log? Just ctrl+click it to open!
I can see some trickery around the parsing (performance impacts? security? and of course the parsing itself…) and the launching of another app (security again?). But it would be awesome.
It’s on our backlog for sure.
WebM is in development – http://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/webmcontainer/
Also it would be nice if IE will support Ogg Vorbis and Opus audio formats. They are a part of WebM and are used for audio. http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-internet-explorer-platform/suggestions/6513488-ogg-vorbis-and-opus-audio-formats-support-firefox
Unfortunately JPEG-XR doesn't support animated images. If WebP is too hard to implement maybe it is possible to implement at least support of APNG? Safari 8 and Firefox support it. http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-internet-explorer-platform/suggestions/6513393-apng-animated-png-images-support-firefox-and-sa
