    Hard g for 'Graphics'. Guh - i - fuh

    Jif is lemon juice and cleaner (even though I know that's called Cif (Sif?) now.

    Never mind .gif - what about really important things like PNEUMONOULTRAMICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS - how the hell do you pronounce that!?

    It's Gif with a hard G. JIF is the "JPEG Image Format" and something very different.

    I don't really care what the inventor of the format calls it, for all we know he could be a complete idiot, jif sounds plain stupid.

    +1. The 'g' in GIF should be pronounced the same way as the 'g' in Git.
