GIF vs. JIF – Which Do You Use?


I feel like this is a settled issue, but every once in a while I hear someone talking about JIFs—and not the “multiple tubs of peanut butter that choosy moms hand-pick in the grocery store aisle” sort of JIF.

To tell you the truth, I didn’t even know it was a public debate until Steve Wilhite of CompuServe weighed in on the “official” pronunciation. I admit, I’m biased to one particular side of this argument.

What about you—have you fallen to the dark side and call them JIFs, or are you pretty sure your graphics aren’t “jraphics”?
