No it isn't. It is an animated WEBP file, as can be seen from its header.

Yes, I can only view it in VIvaldi x64 1.12 stable but I don't get any errors in XnViewMP at all just nothing happens, XnView Classic gives error about not being supported.

Hex Editor Neo (free version) reads the header as WEBP VP8X type
Win10 Pro x64 RS4 1803, Malwarebytes Premium, Process Lasso Pro
XnViewMP and PhotoFiltre Studio X

That's disappointing. Is support for animations planned?
