Re: The 512 Club
I wasn’t asking but just discovered there’s an ImageOptim for Linux (but costs money) and also this free online service which I will try. It doesn’t offer as much control as Squoosh which was used for images here.
I found that for very fine-grained images (especially those with fine grain background), webp images are larger that jpg to get the same quality. otherwise subtle lines and details are smoothed into blandness. But for most images (and for those with a plain background) webp is the way to go (at 84% compression in my case to achieve results comparable with 80% jpg compression).

I hadn’t visited that site in ages and was quite amused to see the SolarWinds logo “proudly” displayed.
More seriously, take care with (many) of those online tools, as they often use the older Google scripts (from back when “search console” was called “developper (something… which I forgot)1”. The GT Metrix site linked upthread by Destry relies on the more recent LightHouse scripts – more reliable and accurate.
The older script stubbornly and constantly always complain that I should “compress my assets”, and it always boils down to fonts not being gzipped… No silly dummy
woff and even more
woff2 are compressed formats.
Use the Browser provided developper tools, tells you a lot. The current version of Chromium/Blink based browser include Lighthouse.
