I'll forever say GIF...I don't care WHAT he created. He should of named the extension JIF if he wanted it pronounced his way.

Graphics has a hard G. I'm not pronouncing it "Jif" and there's absolutely nothing this *****e can do about it.
I will never ever understand why some people call it JIF.
When did he create this? He's a bit late to the party. If he wanted everyone to say JIF he should've corrected people right at the start instead of allowing years of the "incorrect" pronunciation, which should be more correct anyway since it should be a hard G.
And does he really want it associated with these other products now? Before it was unique and absolutely no ambiguity, because nothing else is called a GIF.
I'm still gonna say GIF.
With how it was pronounced before, Wilhite shouldn't have looked a Jift horse in the mouth.
Jif sounds better.
Gif sounds like a 50's nick name for a 8 year old with one of those propeller hats.
I'm willing to debate this for no more than 6 pages.
Now that this is settled, we can move onto the Gil Gerard Paradox.
I've been pronouncing it like Jif, so I'm happy this is settled. Gif with a hard g just sounds wrong.
lol, and the gif master Kane would be the one to post this. t:
My life is in ruins.
I'm sticking with gif with a hard g. Makes more sense given the acronym.
Jif sounds like I'm talking about peanut butter and not a graphic which would only confuse someone who isn't tech savvy.
Jif peanut butter would not go down well in the UK where Jif is associated with sink and bathroom cleaner or lemon juice. I even question the soundness of having Jif lemon juice given that the sink and bathroom cleaner came first and is usually lemon scented.
I've always pronounced it Jif anyway. So Nyah
I've always said it like Jif. Only uncultured philistines pronounce a hard G in any word.
My whole life is a lie.
There's a JIF peanut butter plant in the town down the road by me...I love to drive by it and smell the air there.
I've always pronounced it "JIF."
The jift that keeps jiving
The heck with this guy. I'm not going to pronounce something with a J, if the first word the abbreviation stands for begins with a G.
Name is NickNitro but I'd like it to be pronounced SHH! Global Moderator.....
Choosy moms choose GIF.
