I can confirm Android currently does not fully support .GIF images. You can see them but it will not animate. It is possible Android may provide support in future updates.
@Jeffyo Flash is separate and does not support the viewing of .GIF images either
Update installed. Great, can view animated gifs in browser, it's about time. Still static after downloaded though. Can't use them in pics or forum sigs they just sit there like they did on the browser.
In what browser are you seeing the gif function? And after which update?
Seems like this would be something a custom ROM could address perhaps?
Never thought of it before but it IS pretty silly that the Uber phone can't run a bloody gif.
Both the stock browser and the Dolphin HD, in the update we got last week.
You can download animated gifs but they remain static in Astro or the stock gallery which as far as I can tell are the only places you can upload from.
I want to do this rooting thing but I don't know Jack about it and it sounds like you have to be some kind of computer geek to even have a chance to understand it.
I am not far removed from an idiot and did manage to root my Droid. If you read the thread on rooting your Droid some of the terminology can be intimidating but the actual process is not too difficult, particularly when you understand there are only a couple ways to actually screw the Droid up so badly that you can't un-screw it.
I only rooted my Droid one week ago today, so I am still more or less a noob at it.
Lol. I'll read that thread. I'm sure I'm gonna end up doing it. Thanks Muab.
