Do you know when to use PNG?

PNG is an alternative to JPG, heavily endorsed by some circles, mainly because of its open source and non-commercial nature.
- Alpha blending (24 bit transparency map support)
- Unlimited and limited color palettes. This makes it a good alternative to BMP.
- Multiple CRCs so that file integrity can be checked without viewing
However, it has rather poor file compression and should be used sparingly.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
