Definitive: GIF is Pronounced “jif”

I’ve been trying to convince everyone for years that GIF, as in the Graphics Interchange Format file format for images, is pronounced “jif” like in “jiffy”, not like in “gift”. But noooo, some people just don’t believe me.

Well Steve Olsen has kindly put together collected evidence on why it’s meant to be pronounced “jif”. Thanks Steve, for the great service to humanity you’ve done!

It’s pronounced like “jif”. Period. The end. That’s final. End of story.

See The GIF Pronunciation Page.
