I admit, it was hard to find any, but it seems
that some of the pre-1998 browsers did not support
PNG. According to Webmonkey, PNG wasn't supported
by IE 4.5 for the Mac.

I prefer to use PNG over JPG unless the file is
a photo. PNG is well supported:


But what i said is still true. PNG isn't
supported by all browsers. That doesn't keep me
from using it, i was only pointing out a fact.

Next time, i will just keep my mouth shut.
