I gave it a Wikipedia look. Supposedly twice the compression of jpg with the same quality. Windows doesn't natively support it but a Win10 update is available from MicroSloth.

Not to worry ! There was a reference to a free downloadable codec for this that worked in Win7 and up. Some browsers support it (experimentally). Apparently, it's not so much a format as a container (or some version of that - it's an alphabet soup).
