    I assume you're talking about animated GIFs on a website? Not all GIF images are animated. Or are you talking about GIF images elsewhere, like in the gallery?

    Please elaborate, and provide a specific example/URL.

    Ok. You still still didn't answer my other questions though. As I asked before: GIFs in a web browser or in your gallery? If in the web browser, provide a URL. If in the gallery, please attach so we can see and try for ourselves.

    No matter where the animated GIF is located on the internet, it just shows up as a still picture. No movement.

    I read that animated gifs will be supported on 2.2

    EDIT: btw, Dolphin is the best browser I've used so far, but as I recall, it doesn't support animated gifs either.
