Squoosh Supports a variety of web formats like MozJPEG and WebP and traditional ones like PNG. It allows you to quickly edit, resize, compress and reformate your photo and makes it ready for your web pages. I personally like its feature of giving a 1:1 visual comparison of the original image view and its compressed counterpart that will definitely help you to compare both the images and save it after considering the pros and cons of your downsized image. A slider in the middle of the image is given to slide and compare both the images.
