Google Chrome version 59 will natively support animated PNG technology without any additional software.
Although the news was not disclosed by the official blogs of the company, a Googler confirmed the information through the website of Chromium.
Extensions available in the Chrome Web Store have supported animated PNG, but this is about to end in future browser versions.
"Chrome 59 animates animated PNGs without requiring any kind of browser extensions," the Google official said.
Version 59 can already be found for download on the Dev Channel (unstable and targeted to developers only).
