One side says GIF should be pronounced with a hard 'G'. It stands for Graphic Interchange Format. You wouldn't say 'jraphic,' so why would anyone pronounce it as 'jif'? But in an interview with the New York Times, the creator of the GIF said people who pronounce it with a hard 'G' "are wrong. It is a soft ‘G,’ pronounced ‘jif.’ End of story.” Which side are you on? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We set off a bomb in the middle of the Internet when we told people how the creator of the GIF format pronounces the acronym. Opinions were all over the place.

Some people felt vindicated.

Other Tylters simply DGAF. It's GIF or bust.
