I'm testing the speed of my CDN network by directly browsing to the addresses of images that are stored on it. Some of these images are in
jpg format while others are in
I've noticed that when i browse the address of a
jpg file the image is always displayed by default. When i check the
network tab of the
inspect menu in
google chrome or similar browsers i also see that the response is always displayed under the response type
img. However when its a
jpeg file the browser always downloads it as a document by default and the response can only be found under the
doc response type. So the browser doesn't treat it as an image at all, even though it is.
So why is this the case? Aren't
jpeg pretty much the same thing?
