Andy L's Home Page (Version Oh-One)
The GIF graphics file format was invented by CompuServe in 1987. In the decade since, a debate has been raging as to the correct way to pronounce "GIF": like "jif", or with a hard 'g' as in "gift" as a majority of Mac users seem to prefer. With this page I intend to clear this up once and for all...
It's pronounced like "jif". Period. The end. That's final. End of story.
