Because of I was wondering how good/bad stb_image_write’s PNG compression really is in comparison to other encoders.

So I did a quick comparison between stb_image_write (v0.98) LodePNG (version 20150418), miniz’s tdefl_write_image_to_png_file_in_memory_ex() (v1.15) and libpng (version 1.2.50 from Ubuntu 14.04), always with the highest possible compression I could configure.
